Arab Weather - weather maps in the Arab Regional Weather Center indicate that the Maghreb countries will be affected during the coming days by a series of weather disturbances as a result of the rush of cold air masses accompanying depressions and coinciding with the expansion of warm tropical air currents in the lower layers of the atmosphere where unstable weather conditions prevail that bring rain Heavy rains and possibly snow showers over the high mountain peaks. And in the details
A cold air mass accompanying a running depression rushes on Thursday, and cold weather prevails in northern Morocco, but it is cold in the highlands of Algeria and warm in the rest of the regions, but with the evening hours, air disturbances begin to affect northern Morocco, as a cold air front crosses and rain falls in many areas. The rain is sometimes heavy and accompanied by showers of hail, and snow falls over the peaks of the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.
Some cumulus clouds extend randomly towards parts of eastern Algeria, leading to sporadic and random showers of rain.
And on Friday, the effect of the depression and the cold air mass impulsive behind it deepens, as the weather is cold in most of the northern regions of Morocco and Algeria and very cold over the peaks of the high mountain elevations, and rain falls in northern Morocco, sometimes heavy rains and thunderstorms in some areas, coinciding with heavy snowfall. Above the heights of the Moroccan Atlas Mountains.
The effects of the depression gradually increase on Algeria on Friday, especially with the evening and night hours, while the effects recede from Morocco, and with the crossing of the cold air front, heavy rains fall in northern Morocco and are accompanied by showers of hail, with snow falling over the peaks of the high mountain heights, and it is not excluded that it will be The rain is sometimes heavy and is accompanied by the occurrence of lightning and thunder.
During the depression crossing the airspace of Algeria and the advance of the cold air front, strong easterly to southeasterly winds blow, accompanied by strong gusts, that raise dust waves and dense sandstorms in the desert regions, sometimes extending towards some northern regions of Algeria.
As for Saturday, the depression moves away, but its effects extend towards Tunisia, with rain falling in many regions of Tunisia, especially the northern ones, and the rain continues at intervals in northern Morocco and northern Algeria, in the form of intermittent snow showers over the mountain peaks.
After God’s will, it is expected that the Maghreb countries will be affected again, starting from Saturday / Sunday night, by a new depression, but it is accompanied by an air mass that is colder than the previous one, and the weather will be cold to very cold during the daytime hours in most regions of Morocco and northern Algeria, all the way to northern Tunisia.
Morocco crosses late Saturday/Sunday night and during the day on Sunday a high-efficiency cold air front with which heavy rains fall to very intense with heavy showers of hail, and heavy snowfall is expected and its accumulation with large thicknesses above the heights of the Atlas Mountains.
On Sunday, the same cold air front extends towards northern Algeria, and the same heavy rainy weather prevails, with snow falling and accumulating over the high mountain heights.
The consequences of the depression, the cold air front, will reach northern Tunisia on Monday, with heavy rains accompanied by showers of hail, God willing.
Weather disturbances are not expected to be limited to that only, but many countries of the Maghreb are expected to experience more weather disturbances during the rest of next week.
And given our expectations of heavy rains over a period of several years, the land is expected to become very soft and saturated with water, which increases the risk of landslides and drifts of soil and rocks, especially over the areas of mountain heights and slopes, and seriously warns of the dangers of torrential formation, runoff of valleys and reefs, and the occurrence of floods in some areas. We also advise patients with the respiratory system and eyes to take caution during sandstorms.
