Experts point out that this period is characterized by a strong interaction of clouds with sunset, and they suddenly appear at night on people, and therefore it is also known as “Mawwih.” This period is characterized by strong weather fluctuations, where heavy rain falls, and may be accompanied by the fall of large hailstones, and strong winds. It reaches the point of sand storms.

Due to the danger of weather fluctuations and their harmful effect on humans, everyone is advised to follow weather forecasts during this period to maintain safety.
