Report: High humidity to persist in Qatar until mid-September



As Qatar residents look forward to the end of August, historically the country’s most humid month, meteorologists are predicting that the muggy weather will last at least until Sept. 23.

That means it will be another three to four weeks before Qatar sees cooler temperatures and relief from humid conditions, Gulf Times reports.

Though the official peak temperature in Doha yesterday was only 41C, it felt like much more to those who engaged in outdoor activities.

Accuweather’s RealFeel equation put it at a whopping 50C, taking into account many different factors, including humidity, cloud cover, winds, sun intensity and angle of the sun.

Given the conditions, residents are advised to drink lots of water and remain indoors during peak afternoon hours. As ILoveQatar.net’s founder Khalifa Saleh Al Haroon points out:

The Qatar Meteorology Department is also advising caution in the mornings due to misty conditions.

How are you handling the heat and humidity? Thoughts?
