Permalink 10:11:15 am, Categories: Observation by Howard  

Have been too busy at work these last few weeks to post any reports - but things are improving except the weather which continues with high winds and dust storms - Hope to have some new images later this week
High winds 'will ease by the weekend'

FROM THE PAGES OF THE Gulf Daily News

MANAMA: High winds, which have sandblasted Bahrain for 10 days, are expected to ease by the weekend, weathermen said yesterday. By MANDEEP SINGH

Winds of up to 27 knots lashed Bahrain yesterday but are expected to fall to around 23 knots today and 17 knots tomorrow, says the Civil Aviation Affairs Metrology Directorate.

"The weather is expected to be fine by Friday when we also expect to see an increase in the day temperatures," said the weathermen.

Extremely bad visibility was reported throughout the day yesterday, falling at times to less than 1,000 metres at Bahrain International Airport.

A bad weather warning also remained in place as the weatherman forecast strong to near gale force winds and rough seas well into today.

"Poor visibility and rising sand in places will make it even more uncomfortable," said the weathermen.

They said the bad weather was the result of "disturbance" due to a low-pressure area, which had developed over parts of Saudi Arabia.

"This is causing the weather to be erratic throughout the region," they said.
