 Muscat: Parts of Oman may witness thunderstorms accompanied by downdraft wind on Thursday, said Oman Meteorology.

"The weather will be partly cloudy to cloudy skies along the coastal areas of Dhofar Governorate and the adjoining mountains. There will be mainly clear skies over the rest of Oman along with chances of convective cloud formation and thunderstorms associated with fresh downward wind and may cause flash floods over the Al Hajar Mountains and adjoining areas towards afternoon and evening," Oman Meteorology said in its daily forecast.

The statement added that there are chances of late night to early morning low-level clouds over the coastal areas of Arabian Sea.
