A big Low being pushed across from the Indian monsoon is moving north towards Oman and the UAE, bringing with it humidity and monsoon clouds that should give some thunderstorms and rains across eastern and southern Oman today and for the coming 24 hours. this system might also spread north and there is a slight chance for a passing summer shower over parts of the UAE. This push of moisture from Indian ocean will also result in very high Humidity across much of the Gulf Area which will give the feeling of extreme heat reaching to 51c. The Mediterranean is also under extreme heat watch for the coming 48 hours, temperatures are expected to reach early 40’sC across Lebanon and neighboring countries. this heat wave will continue till the end of this month. drink lots of water ,and stay cool !

Ramadan Weather

Posted: July 19, 2011 in Meweather

I am sure all of you in the middle east and mostly in the Gulf are feeling the heat of summer! well this year looks very much like last year in regards to Temperatures , though i would say that humidity thankfully is still less than usual which is giving a cooler feeling for most of the day except for the middle of the day until around 5 in afternoon. You need to always be reminded to Drink lots of water , since most people forget to drink enough water in summer and feel more tired. Ramadan is also in the corner and should start around August 1st , so for the people that will be fasting you need to drink lots of water before beginning your fasting so that your body holds enough water to keep you moving until you break you fast.

The weather in Ramadan is expected to stay very hot with temperatures sometimes reaching 48c in the beginning of the month, i am expecting the weather to ease slowly by the end of Ramadan but in general it will be a very warm month. humidity might also increase towords the begining of this month but lets hope it eases down also by the end of it.

some rain and thunderstorms can be expected over Oman high lands and south west of Saudi Arabia, these are seasonal rains and are expected to be heavy at times , other than that some clouds might develop over central Saudi Arabia including Riyadh and to the south of the Capital, also some clouds might pass through to the UAE but under very heavy humidity. other than that the weather should be clear and sunny.

wish you a very healthy and cool month.

It is the official beginning of real hot and dusty summer over here and its coming in full power ! severe dust storms hit parts of Kuwait and across much of the Gulf along this week end and will continue over the coming 10 days at least, temperatures are also expected to rise by the end of this week though this dusty weather usually drops the temperature slightly but is also normally followed by high rise in temperature again. the rest of the middle east will start feeling summer, while most of northern middle east including Lebanon and Syria will still have average to bellow average temperatures until the end of this week where temperatures are expected to increase. the weather will stay very hot up until the end of this month. hope you enjoy the summer where ever you are!
