Weather of Arabia - The satellite images of the Arab Regional Weather Center still clearly monitor the huge hurricane Freddy as it gradually approaches Madagascar, and according to the latest satellite images the hurricane is now rotating to the north of the state of Mauritius and affecting it indirectly, but it covers a huge area of water despite its low rating From the fourth category to the third category, accompanied by strong winds reaching more than 181 km / h.
However, according to the numerical simulation models received by the Arab Weather Center, Hurricane Freddy continues to move westward during the next 24 hours, to be concentrated tomorrow morning near the southeastern coast of Madagascar, and then its effects begin to become more clear despite expectations of a decrease in its category for a second, before the hurricane continues to move westward and the eye of the hurricane crosses the land. The evening and night period of Tuesday/Wednesday is accompanied by the highest speed, winds, heaviest waves, and the largest amount of rainfall.
The hurricane is expected to cause strong winds with a speed of more than 170 km/h, causing a large rise in ocean waves, causing flooding in many towns and regions, in addition to heavy rains in most parts of the country, sometimes accompanied by thunderstorms. The hurricane causes floods and landslides due to the expected large amounts of rain that will saturate the soil.
It is expected, according to numerical weather forecast models, that the hurricane will bring huge amounts of rain that may exceed 300 mm. Most of it will fall for a short period of time, especially in the areas of the southeastern coast, and these amounts of rain are equivalent to what falls on some Arab capitals and towns over decades.
This raises the risk of devastating floods in areas facing Hurricane Freddie.
