Yikes! Bahrain faces the hottest month in more than 100 years
Do you ever look at Instagram posts of your friends abroad frolicking at the beach during summer and think, I'd definitely burn alive if I did that here.
Well, the good news is Dubai doesn't seem to be the only country in the ME suffering from the heat.
Last month, the average temperature in Bahrain was the highest ever recorded since 1902. Say what?
Bahrain Meteorological Directorate (BMD) reported some record-breaking temperatures that will make you melt into your seats.
During the month of June, an average temperature of 36.3 degrees Celsius was recorded, which is almost 4 degrees hotter than the normal long-term temperature for June.
This was the highest mean temperature Bahrain experienced since June of 1902!
And that's just an average. The highest temperature recorded during the month was 45.3 degrees Celsius, almost beating the old record of 46.6 degrees Celsius.
But it doesn't seem like Bahrain is the only country suffering from the intense heat this summer. The EU satellite agency reported that June was indeed the hottest month worldwide.
