Saudi Arabia | The dust season is intensifying, and dust is expected from Laith to Jizan in the second half of this week

Arab weather - Sinan Khalaf - It is expected, God willing, that the effect of the active seasonal winds, locally defined as the “dustra season”, will be renewed on the coastal areas south of the Red Sea, starting from Tuesday, and it includes the Jazan region, Al-Laith, Al-Qunfudhah and the coastal road, which will significantly decrease the extent of horizontal visibility. .

What is the dust season?

Al-Ghubra season. This name is given by the local population in the southwestern coasts of the Kingdom to the active monsoon winds, which raise dust waves on the southwestern coasts of Saudi Arabia, including the governorates of Al-Laith and Al-Qunfudhah and extending to the coasts of Jazan.

What are the scientific reasons for the dust season?

Al-Ghubra season is due to the deepening of the Sudan depression, as it pushes moderate to brisk southwesterly winds, raises dust in Sudan and rushes part of it, especially to the heights of Jazan and Asir and sometimes Al-Baha and Taif, coinciding with the activity of wind movement on the coasts of the Red Sea, which raises dust locally on coastal roads .

When does the dust season end?

Climatically, the seasonal dust season usually begins with late June and continues until mid-August, and waves on dust reduce horizontal visibility, which negatively affects respiratory patients.
