Azraq cold arrived prematurely in Kuwait and will continue until the end of January

Astronomer and historian, Adel Al-Saadoun said today, Friday, that the "blue" response in Kuwait, which usually comes on January and continues until the end of the month, came two days earlier.

 

Al-Saadoun added in a statement that the "blue" is characterized by extreme coldness, with blue faces and limbs, and the noses of cattle and camels bloody, and it is said that he is "crying the fortress" (meaning the fox).

He explained that at the end of "Azraq" the extreme cold ends and may continue until February, which in recent years recorded low temperatures.

He mentioned that the "blue" cold is characterized by cold north-westerly winds of medium speed, and sometimes their speed increases due to the concentration of an air high on the Caspian Sea, which pushes the cold northwest winds to the Levant and the Arabian Peninsula, including Kuwait.


And that the temperatures during this period sometimes reach about one degree Celsius or below zero at the end of the night, and the areas most affected by the cold are the open, desert and farms, and this cold results in frost.
