Who is the hottest Arab city in the world?

Answer: According to a report published on the British Metro website, Kuwait City in the Middle East is considered the hottest city on Earth, with extreme temperatures reaching more than 50 degrees Celsius.

On 21 July 2016, a temperature of 54 °C (129 °F) was recorded at Kuwait International Airport terminal, the third highest temperature reading in the world.

Climate scientists warn that temperatures in Kuwait are rising faster than the rest of the world, with temperatures expected to rise by 5.5 degrees Celsius (10 Fahrenheit) by the end of the century compared to the first decade of the 21st century.

In 2021, temperatures were above 50 degrees Celsius for 19 days, a record that could be broken this year.

Also, the lack of humidity has led to sandstorms becoming more severe every year, making the high temperatures even worse.

Despite the challenges, there is a positive side to living in the hottest city in the world.

However, even when Kuwait City does not experience the heat, Record, average temperatures remain very high, reaching 45 degrees Celsius.
