KUWAIT CITY, Dec 27, (Agencies): The Ministry of Interior Tuesday urged motorists and sea-goers to be cautious amid the current turbulent weather across the country. In a press release, the ministry urged drivers to follow security authorities’ guidelines for using alternative routes and avoiding roads swamped with puddles, calling on motorists to stay fairly apart from the vehicle in front. It reminded parents to keep children on the back seat.

The ministry is reachable for help on the phone number: 112. Sea-goers in distress can contact the Coast Guards on 1880888 to get aid. Kuwait is currently witnessing an unstable weather with intermittent rainfalls in different parts of the country.

A police car can be seen at one of the streets in Kuwait flooded with rain water.

Meanwhile, the Meteorological Department was expecting the country to be affected by light and sporadic rain in the morning, with an opportunity for fog to form, which will lead to a decrease in the horizontal visibility, reports Al-Rai daily.

Weather forecast observer at the Meteorology Department Abdulaziz Al-Qarawi told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the rainy situation gradually deepens in some areas, starting from Tuesday afternoon until midnight, as a result of the extension of a surface temperature depression accompanied by a warm and moist air mass.

Al-Qarawi said that this coincides with the presence of an atmospheric depression in the upper layers of the atmosphere, which leads to the proliferation of low and medium clouds interspersed with cumulus clouds, with sporadic light to medium intensity rains and wind activity of more than 45 kmh, with a decrease in horizontal visibility on some regions. He added that the weather begins to gradually improve at dawn on Wednesday, expecting that the maximum temperatures will be between 15 and 17 degrees Celsius, and the minimum temperatures will be between 5 and 8 degrees Celsius.
