Cyclone Gonu transformed into a Cat 3 Cyclone by the time it hit the Omani coast. The reason is not very obvious. A cold front of low atmospheric pressure stands in the way of Gonu on the mainland of the Arab Peninsula. The Cyclone, slowed down by the cold front, transforms into a tropical storm.
We are still not very sure about the cause of this cold front in the Arab peninsula, but we are certain that it is a fact. The Wave has been dropping down temperature in the Arab Desert significantly as we have never witnessed before. If the temperature decrease continues systematically we can expect a freezing wave by next week that can cover the Arab Peninsula with ice. All i can say is that nature is getting back at us.
Whatever you do, do not panic! it will be slow but REAL! At least it saved us from Gonu.
