Thursday, September 20, 2018

Humidity and heat will dominate coastal areas in Kuwait during the weekend, which in general will have light to moderate winds coming from the northwest, said a Kuwaiti meteorologist Thursday.

Speaking to KUNA, meteorologist Ahmad Al-Qarawi indicated that the weather during Thursday would continue to be hot and humid throughout the day especially in coastal areas.

Northwestern winds will dominate the scene at speeds of 6 to 28 kilometers per hour (km/h), said Al-Qarawi, adding that the highest temperature will reach around 44 to 46 degrees Celsius. The state of the sea will be between 1 to 4 feet with light to moderate waves.

Thursday's evening will continue the same weather trend with light to moderate northwestern winds at 6 to 26 km/h as temperatures reach 26 to 28 degrees Celsius. The state of the sea will witness light waves reaching 1 to 3 feet.

During the daytime Friday, the weather will continue to be hot and humid with variable light to moderate winds at speeds of 8 to 30 km/h with temperatures soaring to 44 to 46 degrees Celsius. The state of the sea will witness waves of light to moderate status reaching 1 to 4 feet.

The evening on Friday will not fare any better as the weather continues to maintain its hotness and humidity with northwestern light to moderate winds at 6 to 28 km/h. Temperatures will reach 27 to 29 degrees Celsius while the status of the sea will witness light to moderate waves at 1 to 4 feet.

Saturday continues the trend of the previous two days, with temperatures reaching 44 to 46 degrees Celsius during the day and 26 to 28 degrees during the evening, said Al-Qarawi.

He added that the northwestern wind speed, during the day and evening, would reach between 6 to 26 km/h, a similar case with the sea as it reaches between 1 to 3 feet.
