This weekend looks to be the last cool one of the winter season as temperatures look to rise steadily from Sunday.

The National Centre of Meterology forecast pleasant conditions with maximum highs of 31°C on the coast.

Thursday began with a chill in the air to the joy of early risers and runners, but that is likely to be replaced with clammier conditions in the coming days.

Global forecaster Accuweather forecast highs of 29° to 30°C on Thursday and Friday but said that would give way to "blazing hot" sunshine and highs of 35°C by Sunday.

Relative humidity will rise in the evenings and mornings, the NCM said, which is common as the seasons change.

The waters of the Gulf and Sea of Oman will be moderately calm, the weather centre said, after rough seas and waves last week.
