The meteorologists warned of active winds, with speeds ranging between 15 and 40 knots (28 - 74 km/h), which may lead to the flying of unstable materials as well as dust storms, and the rise of sea waves from medium to rough on most coasts of the Sultanate of Oman, with a maximum height ranging two to three meters long.
