Qatar faced its coldest spell so far this weekend on January 22, 2022, with apparent temperatures felt between 0–13 degrees in several parts of Qatar, with the lowest being at Abu Samra at -2.4 degrees Celsius. According to the Qatar Meteorology Department, Sawda Natheel was at the lowest temperature and morning temperature in Doha areas ranged from 8 to 13 degrees Celsius.

The department also released an infographic on Twitter that showed the map of Qatar with the minimum and maximum recorded temperatures felt in the country on Saturday, January 22. The central Doha areas such as Doha Airport, Hamad Airport felt 15–19 degrees Celsius at their highest, and lowest temperatures dropped to 10 degrees also.

This winter is actually colder than many others faced in Qatar and there has been a stark difference between the actual temperatures and apparent temperatures. The Meteorology department clarified the difference between the two on their Twitter handle.

The daily report from the department stated that inshore weather was relatively cold with scattered clouds and blowing northwesterly winds 8–18 knots and also reaching 24 knots in places during the daytime. Whereas the offshore winds blew up to 37 knots at times and stayed usually within the 17–27 knots range. The report also warned of strong wind and high sea offshore.
