Al Jahouri pointed out that these forecasts come as a result of the impact of the Sultanate’s atmosphere by an extension of an air depression, as satellite images show the presence of cloud cover over most of the Sultanate’s governorates, interspersed with thunder cells with rain of varying intensity in many governorates, leading to the flow of valleys and reefs.
He added: It is evident in the readings of the weather balloon in Muscat and Salalah at dawn today, that the weather condition that affects the Sultanate is characterized by the availability of high amounts of water vapor in the atmosphere as a result of the humid eastern and northeastern winds prevailing in the upper layers of the atmosphere coming from the Arabian Sea and the Sea of Oman, with Indicators of high instability led to the formation of active thunderstorms with high peaks accompanied by heavy rain in some areas, especially in the governorates of North Al Sharqiyah and South Al Sharqiyah.
Al-Juhouri added: One of the weather factors that also helps to enhance the instability in the atmosphere is the extension of what is known as the Tropical Air Convergence Line (ITCZ), which moves north of the equator in the summer and passes over the east of the Arabian Peninsula during this period, a region of low air pressure where it meets Surface winds causing rising air currents that activate local thunderstorm formations on the Al Hajar Mountains and adjacent areas, and extending to the desert areas in an unusual way
At the end of his speech, Khaled Al-Jahuri called on everyone to stay away from the valleys and not to risk crossing them, given the flow of many valleys and the continued expectations of good rain.
The pioneers of social networking sites in the Sultanate of Oman interacted with the weather conditions, as the “Hajj Low” tag issued the trend in the Sultanate, on which a large number of activists interacted, circulating pictures of rain and floods in the governorates.
