A scorching heatwave blanketing Kuwait will continue in the next 72 hours, with northwesterly winds expected during the day leading to blowing dust and low visibility in some areas, national forecasters have warned.

A seasonal low continues to hold across Kuwait, bringing dry and hot weather that could trigger strong winds, meteorologist Abdulaziz Al-Qarawi told KUNA on Thursday.

He predicted searing weather during daytime on Thursday and light to moderate northwesterly winds at a speed of 12 to 40 kilometers per hour, with a chance of dust in some open areas.

The wind speed will gradually ease this evening to between 12 and 35 kilometers per hour, with sea waves reaching anywhere between two and four feet, added the weather forecaster.

A sizzling weekend lies ahead with temperatures hitting 47 to 49 degrees on midday Friday, with northwesterly and dusty winds ranging between 20 to 50 kilometers per hour.

As for Saturday, the weather will be extremely hot at a minimum of 46 degrees, with much more active northwesterly winds at a speed of 25 to 55 kilometers per hour, Al-Qarawi warned.
