Arabia Weather - The latest readings of computer simulation models at the Arab Regional Weather Center indicate that Iraq will be affected by the weekend by an increase in the rates and quantities of dust in the atmosphere, especially on Saturday, as a result of the possibility that the Republic will be affected by dust waves emanating from the Levant Desert, coinciding with the continuation of hot weather in various regions, especially the southern ones.

Extremely hot weather on Friday in large areas of Iraq and a drop in temperatures on Saturday

In detail, it is expected, God willing, that temperatures will rise on Friday as a result of Iraq being affected by hot southwestern air currents, and thus temperatures will become higher than their average for this time of year by about 4-6 degrees Celsius, and the weather will be hot to very hot in various regions. Maximum temperatures are in the early forties Celsius in the capital, Baghdad, and most Iraqi governorates, especially central and southern, while reaching the mid-thirties in the north.

 

Specialists at the Arab Weather Center said that temperatures will tend to drop on Saturday, but remain higher than their averages for this time of year, and the weather will continue to be hot in various regions of Iraq and very hot in the south.

The specialists at the Arab Weather Center said that the winds will be southwesterly to westerly moderate speeds on Friday, sometimes active and causing an increase in dust levels in the atmosphere, especially to the west. As the direction of the winds on Friday/Saturday night and Saturday day shifts to the northwest, Iraq will be affected by dust waves gradually blowing from the Levant Desert. Towards several areas of Iraq, starting from the western regions and reaching the rest of the regions, including the capital, Baghdad, especially during the day on Saturday, when amounts of dust rise significantly in the air and the weather is dusty in many regions, especially the northwestern and western regions, and the dusty condition includes open roads such as the Baghdad International Airport, which also includes the Trebil border crossing with Jordan.

 

This environment requires following some important recommendations, which are:

  • Be aware of the high level of dust in the atmosphere and the possibility of complications for patients with respiratory and eye systems.
  • Decreased and perhaps lack of horizontal vision at times.
  • Close windows and doors to prevent dust from leaking into homes.
