‘Kuwait to experience hot summer this year’.

According to weather forecasts, Kuwait is expected to witness a hot summer with temperatures rising above 50 degrees Celsius. There is a possibility of registering record temperature rises due to climate and environmental changes in the world in general, reports Al-Rai daily. Meteorologist Issa Ramadan explained that the hot, dusty days come due to the Indian seasonal depression. The winds are dry due to the sun, which is almost vertical on the surface of the earth.

Also, the length of the day contributes to higher temperatures on the ground, making the months of June, July and August the hottest months of the year. Temperatures are expected to rise this summer to more than 50 degrees Celsius. There have been more frequent cases of high temperatures and the impact of unprecedented heat waves in the last ten years compared to the 1960s, due to climatic, social and environmental changes in the world in general.

Meanwhile, Head of the Kuwait Astronomical Society Adel Al-Saadoun said, “The summer square period starts on June 7 every year, extends for a period of 39 days, and continues until July 15. During this period, the sun is fixed in the sky for several days, which is called summer solstice, when the sun is perpendicular to the Tropic of Cancer on June 21. After the summer solstice, the heat begins to increase, which is called the heat of departure, on June 25. This is followed by the winds called “the poison winds”, which are dry and hot winds. Their date is around July 5.

This period is overcome by rapid northwestern winds, which reach speeds of more than 50 kilometers sometimes, and are laden with dust. They are hot, dry winds, as they come from the dry northwestern desert lands called the Arabian Desert, which is located between Iraq, Syria and northern Saudi Arabia. There may be days interspersed with calm days. At the same time, the southeast winds laden with moisture sometimes blow due to its crossing over the water surface of the Arabian Gulf.”
