Arabia Weather - The latest weather map outputs from the “Arab Weather Center” indicate expectations that the severity of the hot weather will intensify in all the countries of the Arabian Gulf, starting from the end of this month and continuing at the beginning of the next month of June.

 

And in the details: The weather forecasts and those for forecasting the movement of air masses in the “Arab Weather Center” indicate that a hot air mass will affect the Arabian Peninsula and all the Arab Gulf countries gradually during the coming days and intensify with the first days of next June and include all countries. The Arabian Gulf (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, and the Emirates, in addition to the Sultanate of Oman).

 

The intensification of the upper elevation heralds the growth of a thermal dome, the first this season

 

Weather forecasters at the Arab Weather Center said that the intensification of hot weather is due, God willing, to the intensification of the upper high on the Arabian Peninsula due to the increasing heating of the Earth’s surface by the sun, which allows the formation of a thermal depression above the surface that leads to raising the hot air upward through currents. The rising air, while the upper elevation reflects these rising hot currents, bounces them back down, which leads to the retention of hot air in the lower layers, and the temperature rises significantly, forming what is called a heat dome.

 

Temperatures exceed the mid-forties in Saudi Arabia and approach 50 Celsius in many areas

 

The same weather data from the Arab Weather Center indicates that the consequences of this heat dome will become clear in the coming days, as temperatures in many regions of Saudi Arabia are expected to exceed 45 degrees Celsius, including the capital, Riyadh, and some western regions, including the regions of Mecca and Medina. While it approaches 50 percent in the eastern and southern regions of the Kingdom.

 

Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and the Emirates are in the heart of the heat dome and high temperatures are expected

 

Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain and the Emirates are not immune from the heat, as temperatures are expected to rise during the coming days and the beginning of next month in many areas there, especially the desert areas in Kuwait and Qatar, with high temperatures approaching 45 degrees Celsius and exceeding that in some areas, and in the Emirates it is expected. Temperatures approach the 50 Celsius mark, especially in the southern regions, such as the city of Al Ain, while they are around the mid-30s Celsius in the coastal areas.

 

Extremely hot weather with a temperature of 50 degrees Celsius expected in many governorates of the Sultanate of Oman

 

As for the Sultanate of Oman, it is expected, God willing, that the Sultanate will be directly affected by the extremely hot air mass, as the outputs of numerical models indicate that temperatures will rise to record levels of up to 50 degrees Celsius in many governorates.
