Rain in Oman’s Mountains

and schools in Muscat are to close on Sunday as a precaution

Its unusual to have extensive cloud cover here, but on the drive home we drove through about 150kms of intermittent rain – arriving in Muscat to find that the rain probably arrived in Muscat first, before covering the mountain peaks inland.
