Muscat, April 24 (ONA)---The Water Monitoring devices of the Ministry of Regional Municipalities and Water Resources recorded the highest amount of precipitation (45 ml) in the Wilayats of Saham and Al Masanah, as a result of the Northern parts of the Sultanate remaining under the influence of the weather instability caused by low pressure trough for the third consecutive day.
The Fourth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2007) had warned that increases in the amount of precipitation are very likely in high latitudes, while decreases are likely in most subtropical land regions.
