Weather of Arabia - Sinan Khalaf - The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is exposed to many weather phenomena throughout the year, including what is seasonal and associated with specific times of the year, just like the dust season
Dust season, this name is given by the locals to the active monsoon winds, which raise dust waves on the coasts of Tihama, the southwestern coasts of Saudi Arabia, including the provinces of Al-Lith and Al-Qunfudhah and extending to the coasts of Jazan.
The dust season is due to the deepening of the Sudan depression, as it drives moderate to brisk southwesterly winds, raising dust in Sudan and part of it rushing, especially to the heights of Jazan, Asir, and sometimes Al-Baha and Taif, coinciding with the activity of the wind movement on the coasts of the Red Sea, which raises dust locally on the coastal roads. .
Climatically, the seasonal dust season usually begins with late June and continues until mid-August, and dust waves reduce the range of horizontal vision, which negatively affects patients with the respiratory system.
