Heat Dome Expected to Hit Seven Arab Countries Soon

Seven Arab countries are expected to be exposed to an unprecedented rise in temperatures within days, sometimes reaching 50 degrees Celsius, coinciding with United Nations warnings that the world as a whole has begun to record the highest recorded temperatures in its history.

Preliminary data published by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) showed on Monday that the first week of July was the hottest week ever this year.

According to the “Arab Weather” platform, air maps show that the hot mass is expected to affect seven Arab countries, namely Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Palestine, as of the end of this week.

The expected rise is due to what is known as the “heat dome”, which is caused by the concentration of the seasonal Arabian high in the north of the Arabian Peninsula.
