Weather of Arabia - This summer witnessed severe weather events in many regions, from severe forest fires and heat waves to floods and hailstorms, as southern Europe and the Maghreb countries were affected by a severe and exhausting heat wave, with which temperatures rose to unprecedented values.

This wave caused the surface temperature of the Mediterranean Sea to rise from its usual rates by more than 5 degrees Celsius, especially in the central part of it.

An average temperature of 28.7 °C was reached, which is the highest level recorded in the history of recent climate records, surpassing the previous record set in 2003 by half a °C.

This hike will have its aftermath!

Specialists at the Arab Weather Center said that the continuation of this steady rise in the temperature of the Mediterranean flat during the coming months will necessarily lead to more extreme weather conditions in some countries bordering the Mediterranean basin during the coming fall!

In addition to the high chances of the occurrence of depressions with subtropical characteristics (Medicane), which is a hurricane depression accompanied by a dynamic surface depression whose impact is violent.

Separately, some studies indicate that marine heat waves lead to mass death of some fish species and cause losses to the seafood industry.
