Oman Weather: Rain, Rough Sea Conditions Forecast On March 26-27

Oman is likely to experience bouts of heavy rain and possible rough sea conditions over the next two days, March 25-26, according to the sultanate’s civil aviation authorities and meteorology department.

The Oman civil aviation authority’s National Multi-Hazard Early Warning Centre has issued a circular on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), stating that due to the “trough of a low system” over Oman, residents could expect cloud advection (caused by the horizontal transfer of air that usually results in warmer air being forced up over cooler air) and formation over most governates in the sultanate.

The centre also warned of a possibility of rain and thundershowers, varying in intensity from 10-40mm over areas such as Al Hajar mountains, Dhofra, parts of Al Wusta and South Al Sharqiya.

Oman coastal areas could be impacted
The centre has forecast sea conditions that could range from moderate to rough (1.5-3 metres) along certain coastal areas including Musandam, with winds blowing at 12-25 knots over most areas of the sultanate. This could also cause dust to rise over roads and open areas.

Civil aviation authorities have advised residents to take the necessary safety precautions in case of wet spells and poor visibility and steer clear of wadis.
