The agency has warned of thunderstorms with moderate to heavy rain and harsh winds in Jazan, Asir and Najran. It also warned that heavy rain could lead to flooding in some areas.

The civil defense also warned of moderate rain thunderstorms in the capital city of Riyadh, the Eastern Province, Al-Baha and Mecca, and light to moderate rain will fall on holy sites (Mina, Muzdalifa, Arafat) on Monday.

The warnings were issued based on data received from the National Center for Meteorology.
