The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) has said that this is set to be the Earth’s hottest year on record, and there’s no denying it after experiencing – what feels like – a particularly hot summer.
Fortunately, a forecaster from the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has told Gulf News, “Starting on August 22, the temperatures will gradually decrease. As to how much, we cannot really say as it varies from year to year, but we estimate this year to be between 2 degrees Celsius and 4 degrees Celsius initially.”
Following sweaty few months, with temperatures and humidity reaching rather high levels, it’s safe to say we’re relieved!
Whether the weather will actually improve, only time will tell, but the NCMS has advised residents to ignore temperature readings from apps or in their cars, as the organisation uses a Stevenson screen, which has perfect placement for accurate weather assessments.
We’ll chill out and leave it to the pros, in that case!
