KUWAIT, Jan 18 (KUNA) -- Kuwait's weather on Thursday will continue to be
sunny with light to moderate northwesterly to northerly wind, said Mohammad
Karam, Director of Kuwaiti Meteorological Center at The Directorate General of
Civil Aviation (DGCA).
Karam told KUNA that the Siberian Front will begin on Friday, and will be
picking up towards the region accompanied by very cold winds on the upper
atmosphere and then the north westerly winds begin. By day, Karam said, a
moderate speed will carry on, developing into a storm of a speed exceeding 70
An opportunity is ripe for a sharp decrease in vision due to horizontal
dust from the north west of the country (of central and southern Iraq), which
is expected to be a source of a dust storm to be heading toward Kuwait and
continues until Saturday, he added.
He noted that the temperature will drop sharply, as it would be the lowest
since the beginning of the winter season this year; expected to drop to
below-zero Celsius in many areas on Saturday night. "Sunday it will be
freezing cold," Karam said.
Karam expected the exposed agricultural crops to frost in this period.
As for sea conditions, he said it would rise starting on Friday, advising
sea-goers to be careful and cautious due to high waves starting at noon on
