KUWAIT CITY, 30 March: According to the Al-Ujairi Scientific Center, “the country’s weather is unstable because of the change from one season to another and the overlap between seasons, which leads to unstable wind movement accompanied by thunderstorms and hail,” according to Al-Rai daily.
According to a statement from the centre, “the two periods of the Sarayat that preceded and the Sarayat that we are currently living in are an overlap between the two intimate seasons, which end on April 2 and are followed by the entry of the Dra’an season, and thus we witness a set of climatic changes and unstable weather.”
He noted that the Sarayat, which is regarded as one of the characteristic elements of the following season, Dra’an. He emphasised that the Sarayat, which is regarded as one of its characteristic indications and is a fleeting phenomena before hot air replaces cold air and causes rising dust, characterises the following season, known as Dra’an. He said that because the winds alter their speed and direction, making them difficult to forecast, Dra’an is one of the most deadly seasons.
