PLEASANT WEATHER PERFECT FOR MIDWEEK BREAK IN OMAN.
Many are looking forward to the midweek break on Tuesday with day-long excursions at parks, beaches and fort visits, and even drives to Jebel Shams and Jebel Akhdar.
'In many parts of Oman, temperatures will be around the mid-thirties proving to be perfect for outdoor activities. The coolest spot will be Jebel Akhdar,' a Met official said.
Given the pleasant weather expected throughout the day, many are planning a quick day out with their families. 'The midweek holiday is just a big plus for us. We will make good use of it to have a get-together with family and friends at a beach in Muscat as we anticipate the weather to be cool.
It has been a long time since we had an outdoor get-together,' Asila al Naamani, mother of two, said.
Others are planning drives outside Muscat and Jebel Shams seems to be the preferred destination. 'I will be visiting the place along with my Omani friends. The break is like a blessing for me because sometimes we don't get a chance to visit such places in weekends because everyone is busy with his or her family.
'Above all, we are always looking forward to get the most of any cool weather that comes along,' said Anwar Abdu, an expatriate who has been in Oman for a year now.
