The weather forecast in Kuwait on Wednesday and the upcoming days will witness unstable weather due to the Indian seasonal low pressure, said the official at Kuwait Metrological Center Abdulaziz Al-Qarawi. The low pressure is causing active northwestern winds loaded with dust coming from abroad and within the country.

He added that the speed of wind would be at 70 km/h, with horizontal vision downgraded to less than 1,000 meters in some areas especially in the open. Al-Qarawi said that the sea state would witness waves rising to more than 7 feet.

The Meteorological Department has called on citizens and residents to follow the weather bulletin through its web page at http://www.met.gov.kw, to see the latest weather developments.  Kuwait's Interior Ministry has issued severe weather warnings across the country, calling on drivers to take extra precaution due to impaired visibility.

Motorists are encouraged to strictly abide by traffic regulations and should not hesitate to ask for assistance by dialing the emergency number 112. Meanwhile, maritime traffic has also been paralyzed in Kuwaiti ports as a result of the deteriorating weather conditions, Kuwait Ports Authority (KPA) announced. Navigation operations have been suspended indefinitely at Shuwaikh, Shuaiba and Doha ports, KPA said in a statement.

Forecasters have indicated that unstable weather conditions will prevail in the coming days, with strong winds and blowing dust expected to cause poor visibility.
