Saudi Arabia has taken precautionary measures in response to severe rainstorms that have inundated several regions, leading to flooded roads and the displacement of vehicles. The National Center of Meteorology has issued warnings of moderate to heavy thunderstorms accompanied by strong winds and hail, with the inclement weather expected to persist in the Riyadh region until Monday.

Areas significantly affected by the adverse weather conditions include Riyadh, Diriyah, and Huraymala, stretching from Dhurma to Al Quwaiiyah. In light of these circumstances, educational institutions in Asir, Najran, and other impacted regions have suspended classes for Sunday.

Furthermore, various universities and technical training facilities across the kingdom, such as King Khalid University, Najran University, and several faculties of the University of Bisha, have also announced the suspension of classes.

The weather forecast predicts light to moderate rainfall in parts of the eastern regions and the eastern sections of the northern border, potentially exacerbating disruptions due to raised dust and strong winds.

In addition to terrestrial concerns, maritime conditions in the Red Sea and the Arabian Gulf are expected to be turbulent, with wind speeds reaching up to 50 km/h and wave heights possibly exceeding two meters during thunderstorms.
