Qatar’s Ministry of Interior has urged people on major roads to drive carefully as thunderstorms move over the country.

Driving in rainy condition requires extra attention and control. Those using Abu Samara and Um Bab highways are advised to be cautious.

According to the Qatar Meteorology Department (MET), scattered rain and storms are forecast for the beginning of the week.

There’s also a chance of more rain on Tuesday night that would continue into Wednesday, the MET said in a statement.

This morning, forecasters said on Instagram that the storm is moving toward the capital, adding that the rain is varying in intensity and people should “be careful.”

Speaking to Doha News, Abdulla Al Mannai, head of forecast and analysis at the MET, said intermittent rain across Qatar should stick around until Thursday.

For their part, many residents appear to be pretty happy about the precipitation:
