Odd Day in Doha

Noteable: looks like rainfall exceeded the yearly average in six hours yesterday:

“According to the Civil Aviation Authority, the suburb of Abu Hamor in the capital Doha, recorded 84mm of rain in less than 6 hours, making it the nation’s wettest October day on record.

The October average rainfall is just 1.1mm and the downpour easily exceeded Qatar’s average annual of 77mm.”
