Arabia Weather - Weather specialists at the Regional Arab Weather Center said that the latest computer model outputs indicate that Kuwait will be affected in the last days of May by a heat wave resulting from the intensification of the Arab air high, which works to fuel the heat dome phenomenon, which is accompanied by an air mass with high surface heating that works to Raising temperatures to nearly 50 degrees Celsius, especially in the southern and eastern regions.

 

Early warning: The thermal dome creates a heat wave during which maximum temperatures approach 50, especially in Jahra.

According to the latest computer outputs received, it is expected that Kuwait will be affected for the first time this year by the heat dome phenomenon, which will cause a heat wave to affect the country, as temperatures will rise significantly and noticeably, reaching in Kuwait City to approximately 44-45 degrees Celsius, while it will reach for the first time in the southern regions. And the eastern regions, such as Al-Jahra, Sabah Al-Ahmad, and their surroundings, reached approximately 48 to 49 degrees Celsius, thus touching 50 Celsius amid a scorching, extremely hot, and exhausting atmosphere in general.

 

Scientifically and climatically: What is the phenomenon of heat dome that will affect Kuwait at the end of the month?

A heat dome is a climate phenomenon that results from an area of high atmospheric pressure in the high layers of the atmosphere that heats the air in the lower layers of the atmosphere due to a dynamic process called (heating under pressure), whereby with the compression of the air in a certain area under the influence of an air pressure in the high layers of the atmosphere, a heat dome is created. A hot, surface air mass whose intensity varies according to the region and the intensity of the air high, and also according to the period of its formation during the year.

 

The air riser traps the hot air like a lid or lid on a boiling pot, and as the hot air expands vertically in the atmosphere, the high pressure pushes it toward the ground again, and the air is compressed again under the area of high atmospheric pressure, causing it to gain more heat. This is scientifically known as heat heating. the pressure.

 

God knows.
