What are the similarities between the dark storm and the expected sandstorm on Friday in Arabia

<p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><strong>Arab Weather</strong> - Many remember the historical <strong>dark</strong> sandstorm that struck the Arabian Peninsula at the beginning of April of 2015 AD, this storm was the perfect storm by all standards for a region such as the Arabian Peninsula, where all the appropriate conditions were created to sit on the throne of one of the strongest sandstorms in the history of climatic records For the Arabian Peninsula.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Today, we recall a dark storm while we watch the formation of a sandstorm that will affect the Arabian Peninsula next Friday. It may not be as strong as a dark storm, but it will resemble it in many elements and phenomena, so what is it?</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The two storms are similar in the manner of formation</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The depression formed in the north of the Arabian Peninsula was the main cause of the <strong>dark</strong> sandstorm, which helped the temperature difference and the great wind activity.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Wednesday morning 1/4/2015 3 strong sandstorms formed, one of which is major and located in the north of Saudi Arabia, another storm in the north-east of the country and the last was in Al-Qassim and in the Riyadh region. </p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/uploads-2020/6969.jpg" style="width: 738px; height: 600px;" /></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> These three storms merged very quickly and turned into a single sandstorm of great magnitude called <strong>the dark storm</strong> , reaching an area of a quarter of a million square kilometers, and began to affect the northern border area and Hail, and the speed of wind gusts reached 110 km / hour in Rafha and began to affect the country strongly, The southeastern part of the sandstorm was affecting Riyadh and Qassim with very hot and dry winds.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The storm expected on Friday will resemble <strong>a</strong> dark storm.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The sand loosened due to the lack of rain in the winter</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The two stormy seasons share the lack of rain during the winter, which leads to loosening of the sand and soil particles, making them easily volatile during strong winds.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The two storms are spring</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Despite the difference in the date of the occurrence of the two storms, they have in common the fact that they are two spring weather events that are in the same season and climatic conditions.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The two storms affect the same countries and regions</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> According to the latest outputs of numerical models, the sandstorm expected on Friday will be smaller compared to the dark storm, but it will affect the same countries: the Levant Desert, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, the Emirates, and later Oman and Yemen.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The coming storm will lead to a lack of horizontal visibility in many areas, including the capital, Riyadh</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> The coming storm will lead to a lack of horizontal visibility in some central, eastern and southern regions of Saudi Arabia, where the formation of <strong>a wall sandstorm</strong> north of the Riyadh region and its movement towards the capital on Friday evening, as happened in the dark storm, is not ruled out.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> However, the storm remains dark and has a wider impact in terms of areas where the horizontal visibility is lost due to it, as the impact of the storm reached several Gulf cities such as Doha, Manama, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and its impact also reached Dammam and Jubail in eastern Saudi Arabia, while it strongly affected Hafar Al-Batin and Rafha in the north of the Kingdom and large parts of West of the State of Kuwait.</p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><h3 style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <strong>The oncoming storm is accompanied by wind gusts of more than 100 km / h</strong></h3><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> Due to the huge thermal difference that will occur between Friday and Saturday, and the movement of a cold air front from the north of the Arabian Peninsula towards its center, and also the presence of a shallow air depression in the middle of the Arabian Gulf, the expected winds will be strong in areas of a sandy nature, which will lead to the formation of this strong sandstorm as happened During the storm it is dark. </p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/uploads-2020/087-027ED636A1.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 451px;" /></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> In conclusion, it must be noted that despite the great similarity between a dark storm and the expected storm on the Arabian Peninsula on Friday and Saturday, the dark storm will be stronger compared to what is expected to happen on Friday, as the dark storm was exceptional and historical in terms of strength, area and time period, While the next storm will be smaller and faster in terms of impact.</p>
