Arab countries brace for severe heatwave with temperatures reaching 50°C

Shafaqna English- A scorching heatwave is poised to Iraq and other Arab countries this week, with temperatures expected to soar to 50°C, prompting warnings on safety.

The Arab Weather Center has issued a severe warning for an upcoming “scorching” heatwave expected to hit by Wednesday, with temperatures predicted to soar to 50 degrees Celsius across several Arab countries, including Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, and the UAE.

In a bulletin released Monday (08 July 2024), the centre highlighted that significant parts of the Arabian Peninsula will be affected by this extreme heatwave. The heatwave is driven by a high-pressure system intensifying in the upper layers of the atmosphere and a deepening thermal low-pressure system in eastern Arabia.
