More dusty weather in upcoming days -- forecast

KUWAIT, May 22 (KUNA) -- The current sandstorm and shifting weather conditions is expected to continue for the next couple of days, said a weather forecaster here Tuesday.
Head of weather forecast at the Directorate General for Civil Aviation Mohammad Karam told KUNA that the northern to northwest winds are carrying a huge quantity of sand, resulting in a sandstorm that is expected to prevail for the upcoming days.
Visibility would be low in the country, said the official who added that on the bright-side, the sandstorm would help decrease the hot summer temperature in Kuwait.
Karam urged people to steer away from the sea due to strong wind movement and high waves. (end) mf.gta KUNA 221559 May 12NNNN
