Weather of Arabia - We review with you here everything you want to know about the frigid polar wave that is expected to affect the whole of the eastern Mediterranean, starting on Sunday, God willing.

 

1- The polar mass separated from the North Pole and rushed into the region

As a result of the concentration of a giant air rise over large parts of the European continent and its extension northward towards areas close to the North Pole, this high forced a polar mass to separate and rush towards the regions of Turkey, Iraq and the Levant in this way, and this polar mass is associated with record temperatures and extremely cold in All layers of the atmosphere, the most important of which is the surface.

 

 

2- The block followed a continental path... What does that mean?

That is, it did not cross wide water bodies, and therefore this mass maintained strong polar characteristics despite its distance from the North Pole, for example, temperatures drop below zero Celsius in large parts of the Levant, Iraq and northern Saudi Arabia during the night hours until the early morning.

 

 

3- The movement of the center of mass to Badiyat al-Sham

According to computer simulation models that sense the movement of this mass, the various numerical models are now indicating the movement of the center of the mass from Turkish lands to Badia al-Sham through Syria. The regions of the Levant and Iraq, all the way to the Arabian Peninsula and the Arabian Gulf, vary in severity from one region to another.

 

 

4- A huge million area for this block!

This block covers and affects Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Kuwait, northern and central Saudi Arabia, and western Iranian lands, in addition to the northern parts of Egypt. The area of this block is considered large if compared to other cold polar blocks Previous that rushed into our areas.

 

 

5- Very low temperatures during the coming nights

It is expected that the temperatures will record very low values, so that it is expected that the Badia and desert regions in Jordan will record temperatures of up to -6 degrees Celsius, which are dangerous and life-threatening values for people who stay abroad if they do not deal seriously with these values. Capitals are also not immune to these low values, including the capital Amman, as it is expected that some neighborhoods of the capital will approach -3 percentage points.

 

 

6- There is no snow storm in Jordan, but some possible showers

And for snow lovers, who are many in Jordan, they will not like this, as despite the expected standard polar cold that the path of the mass and the way the air systems are formed do not serve Jordan’s impact on a snow storm, but some possible snow, which does not rule out the occurrence of snow accumulations on Sunday in the eastern Badia regions ( Al-Ruwaished, Al-Safawi, the international road linking with Baghdad, the Jordanian/Iraqi border, Al-Dafiana and Umm Al-Qatin) in addition to parts of the southeastern Badia regions and above the Karak and Al-Sharah heights, which include the highlands (Tafila, Al-Shoubak, Wadi Musa, Mubarak, Ras Al-Naqab and Al-Na’imat villages all the way to the heights of Rum) The chances of snow will be renewed on Wednesday, God willing.

 

 

7- Extensive and dangerous freezing and icing require serious treatment

It is expected, God willing, that a wave of ice and freezing will affect most of the regions of the Levant and several parts of Iraq and northern Saudi Arabia, and it is feared that because of this situation, serious damage to crops or livestock if they are not protected, as well as to exposed pipes or even vehicles in addition to the imminent danger from the path On frozen roads, whether by vehicle or on foot. Therefore, we invite you to take the utmost care, caution and attention in such exceptional circumstances.

 

 

8- The week may be the coldest since January 2008

This weather takes us back to 2008, specifically during the period from 10-20 January, when Jordan and the rest of the eastern Mediterranean were affected by a very cold air mass that caused one of the strongest frost waves during the last twenty years, so that temperatures during that period dropped to record levels. The weather conditions are similar to that of the polar wave.

 

 

9- Cairo is also not immune from the indirect effects of this bloc.

Indirect effects reach Cairo in Egypt as a result of this block, despite the geographical distance from it, and the effect of this block on the Egyptian lands is in the form of remarkably low temperatures in the night hours to prevail in severe cold weather, and the minimum temperature in Cairo may reach 8 degrees Celsius. Just.

 

 

10- Rare snowfalls in parts of northern Saudi Arabia

Snow is likely to occur during the daylight hours on Sunday in parts of Turaif and its neighboring areas, while with the hours of Sunday night / Monday and dawn on Monday, it is expected that an additional deepening of the very cold air mass will occur, which may result in an expansion in the scope of snowfall to include several parts From the heights of Arar and Al-Jawf, the southern mountains of Tabuk, and possibly Jabal Al-Lawz.
