Hailstorm In Hottest Kuwait

KUWAIT CITY: “We have not seen so much hail during the winter season in 15 years,” said Muhammad Karam, a former director of Kuwait’s meteorological department. The country’s Met department said precipitation since Tuesday had reached up to 63mm but that the weather was clearing up.

The images of the rare winter white event was widely shared on social media. While the colder weather brought cheers to the children and elders donned in raincoats, Karam said he expects the phenomenon to reoccur as climate change disrupts weather patterns.

The oil-rich Gulf nation is the hottest countries on Earth that endures blistering summer heat, scientists predict it could become unlivable in future because of climate change.

In 2016, summer temperatures peaked at 54 degrees Celsius (129 degrees Fahrenheit).Parts of Kuwait could get 4.5 degrees Celsius hotter from 2071 to 2100 compared with the historical average, the Environment Public Authority has warned.
