National Center of Meteorology Expects Thunderstorm Rains in Saudi Arabia

The National Center of Meteorology predicted in its weather report today, Friday, that there is still a chance for thunderstorm rains accompanied by active winds in parts of Saudi Arabia like Jizan and Asir regions. The surface winds will be active, stirring up dust in the Najran region and the coastal parts of the southern Mecca region, extending to the Jazan region. The weather also remains hot to very hot in Riyadh.

The center revealed that Al-Ahsa – eastern Saudi Arabia – recorded the highest temperature of 47 degrees Celsius in the Kingdom on Thursday. It stretched over an extensive area, boasting more than 2.5 million palm trees. This vast coverage makes it the largest palm oasis on the globe. The oasis has a natural aquifer system which ensures its lushness in the midst of the surrounding desert landscape. The size of Al-Ahsa is not just impressive but also plays a crucial role in the ecological balance of the region.

However, Al-Souda recorded the lowest temperature of only 15 degrees.

In its report on the weather condition and expected temperatures in Saudi Arabia, the center anticipated the maximum temperatures to reach 46 degrees Celsius in Dammam, Wadi Al-Dawasir, and Hafar Al-Batin, and 45 degrees in Mecca, Al-Kharj, Sharurah and Al-Dahna.

Regarding minimum temperatures, Al-Souda came at the bottom of the list with 15 degrees, followed by Abha with 19 degrees, Al-Baha with 20 degrees, Al-Qurayyat with 23 degrees, and Turaif with 24.
