Weather of Arabia - Weather maps in the Arab Regional Weather Center indicate that Algeria will be affected by a polar air mass of polar origin and very cold, accompanying an air depression, as of Wednesday, when the weather will be very cold, clouds will multiply, and rain will fall in varying abundance, accompanied by the occurrence of thunder and heavy showers of hail at the will of God, and that is in the various northern regions, including the capital, Algeria, and the rains are sometimes heavy, which leads to the formation of torrential rains, especially in the low-lying areas.

Snow is expected to fall over many areas in northern Algeria, including the heights of the capital. In addition, the snow is sometimes heavy and accumulated with different thicknesses according to the height, and the accumulation increases as the height above sea level increases.

 

The depression and the polar air mass include Morocco

 

According to the same weather maps we have in the Arab Regional Weather Center, they include the effects of the depression and the very cold air mass in the Maghreb, where cold to very cold weather prevails in northern Morocco, and it rains in varying abundance, accompanied by the occurrence of thunder and showers of hail, and showers of snow fall over the heights of the Atlas Mountains, It accumulates with increasing altitude above sea level.

The depression includes Tunisia and chances of snow

It is expected, God willing, that the depression will include Tunisia on Wednesday, when the weather will be cold and showers of rain will fall in some northern regions, and Tunisia will be increasingly affected by the depression on Thursday, and showers of rain and hail will fall. Snow on high mountain elevations.

 

Strong winds and very cold weather in all regions of the Maghreb

During the influence of the polar air mass, the weather is cold to very cold, and the minimum temperatures fall below zero degrees Celsius, especially in northern Algeria and Morocco.

Northwesterly winds are blowing, active to strong, at speed, accompanied by strong gusts exceeding 100 km/h over mountain heights, especially from Morocco and Algeria. A raging sea prevails, with wave heights of more than 4 meters near the coasts and in depth.

On a different note, it is expected that strong winds will cause strong and huge dust waves to arise in many desert regions of Morocco and Algeria and reach Libya, although they are far from the direct effects of the depression.

In light of the expected weather conditions, the Arab Weather Center recommends:

  • Be aware of the dangers of floods and the flow of valleys and gorges
  • Pay attention to the dangers of snowfall and accumulation, especially in northern Algeria.
  • Pay attention to the danger of lack of horizontal visibility due to dust waves in desert areas.
