(MENAFN - Arab Times) Kuwait has been experiencing unstable weather conditions since Saturday night with intermittent rainfalls, followed by strong sandstorm with winds blowing up to 70 km/h; thereby, reducing visibility to about 500 meters. This led to the suspension of marine navigation at Shuwaikh and Shuaiba ports, amidst expectations that the dusty weather and lower temperatures will continue in the coming days



Director of Meteorology Department Mohammad Karam said the weather will improve in terms of visibility with the gradual disappearance of clouds and rain, but this will be followed by active northwesterly winds causing dust. In his recent press statement, Karam explained that on Monday, dust will be suspended in the sky and the wind speed will be moderate as the temperature is expected to be as low as 11 degrees Celsius in a day or so. He revealed the highest temperature recorded on Sunday was 21 degrees Celsius and this moderate temperature will continue until Tuesday. He added the weather will soon be clear and sunny with unstable slow wind direction



Meanwhile, asked about the maritime weather conditions, Guidance Supervisor at Shuwaikh Port Captain Adel Al-Abeed disclosed the visibility level at the port reached 1.7 knots and the wind speed reached 32 knots, exceeding the normal rate for sailing which is 20 knots. He said there are three ships waiting to leave the port, besides four others anchored on the waiting area until the visibility level improves to less than 20 knots for them to enter the port. At Shuaiba Port, acting Director of Marine Operations Captain Tawfeeq Shehab said the wind speed is about 40 knots, while the increase of waves and visibility levels is about four knots



He added that currently, not even a single ship is docked at the port. According to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, air traffic at Kuwait International Airport is normal despite the wave of dust the country is currently experiencing. Director of Operations at the airport Essam Al-Zamel confirmed the take-off and landing movements of airplanes at the airport are normal; pointing out the current visibility level is 1,400 meters
