Saudi Arabia to Expect Higher Rainfall During Ramadan
Higher-than-average rainfall is forecast to hit most regions of Saudi Arabia during Ramadan, which is expected to begin on March 22.
According to Aqeel Al Aqeel, a weather analyst at the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM), the rate of precipitation during Ramadan would be higher in most regions of Saudi Arabia. He said that he expected the weather at the beginning of the month of Ramadan to be moderate in the northern, eastern, and central regions of Saudi Arabia.
Ramadan will coincide with spring this year and thus the probability of the rate of precipitation will increase, and temperatures will also increase by 1ºC, he told Al Ekhbariya on Tuesday.
The temperature will be higher by 1.5ºC in the regions of Tabuk, Al Jouf and Hail. However, temperatures will rise towards the end of Ramadan in Makkah and coastal regions surrounding it.
NCM will issue a detailed report on weather before Ramadan.
