"DOHA • More chill and rains have been forecast for this morning. The mercury is expected to dip to seven degrees Celsius early today with rains expected to lash parts of Doha and the rest of the country at least until 10am, turning the chill more biting than yesterday, meteorologists said."
Thank you, Peninsula.

Also, seven degrees is pretty dang cold in a country with no heaters. Right now I'm huddled under a blanket with my cat. At least I'm not in Riyadh, which is getting below freezing at night, or in mountainous parts of the UAE, where it's *snowing*. wtf.
