H. (U) SYNOPTIC DISCUSSION: High pressure continues to dominate the weather over the region as another summer Shamal sets up that will again produce strong northwesterly flow across the Arabian Gulf, increasing seas and reducing visibility in the southern portion, the Strait of Hormuz and the western Gulf of Oman. Expect these conditions to abate over the forecast period.
