Cool weather and hazy days are forecast for the week ahead, with westerly winds of up to 32kph blowing dust.

Temperatures will rise gradually during the day, hitting up to 29°C in the interior and 27°C on the coast. Skies will be fair to partly cloudy.

At night, the mercury will drop as low as 10°C in the interior and 13°C on the coast.

Seas will be a little rough in the Arabian Gulf and Gulf of Oman.

Clearer weather will be welcomed by drivers who endured horrendous conditions last week when thick fog led to hundreds of accidents across the country.
