People in Qatar on Monday experienced another day of low temperatures and similar conditions are expected to prevail Tuesday as well, weather charts show.
While the mercury level dropped to 8C in Mesaieed and Turayna, the ‘apparent temperature’ fell to just 2C in Abu Samra, the Qatar Met department said.
“The ‘feels like’ temperature gets colder as wind speed increases due to the wind chill effect. The lowest apparent temperature was recorded in Abu Samra, reaching 2C,” the department tweeted.
According to information available online, ‘apparent temperature’ – or ‘feels like temperature’ - is the temperature equivalent perceived by humans, caused by the combined effects of air temperature, relative humidity and wind speed. It is a measurement of how hot or cold it actually feels like outside.
While there is no warning for strong winds Tuesday, people in the country can continue enjoying wintry conditions Tuesday as well, according to the forecast.
The detailed weather report says “sunny and relative cold” conditions are expected during the daytime, and it will be cold at night as well. Offshore, it will be partly cloudy at times.
