An Even Hotter Summer is Expected for Qatar

If you were hoping for a mild summer in Qatar, you’re about to be disappointed. We're about to see an abnormally hot summer.

An Even Hotter Summer is Expected for Qatar
Qatar is no stranger to heat, but it seems like the country is in for an even hotter summer than usual. The Qatar Meteorology Department (MET) stated that there’s a 60 to 70 per cent chance that Qatar will see above-average temperatures throughout June.

The country is already seeing proof of that as high temperatures, reaching into the 40s, have been recorded this month. The average temperature in April usually doesn’t exceed 33 degrees Celsius.

The MET stated that winds are the cause for the rising temperatures.

Last year, Qatar residents witnessed an unusually scorching summer too. At the time, climate change was said to be the culprit.

During weather like this, it’s highly recommended to drink plenty of fluids and to avoid being in direct sunlight for extended periods of time.

Unfortunately, heat is not the only concern for many residents. The start of summer brings with it allergy flare-ups.

Hamad Medical Corp. (HMC) has even released a statement to advise residents to watch out for symptoms, including sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, coughs and headaches.

Outdoor exposure to pollen and sand should be minimised. For those who have indoor allergens, washing the bedding every week, using a dehumidifier and removing carpets or stuffed toys are all things that could help.
