The maximum temperature for the month of July will be 43.8°C while the minimum temperature will be 29.1°C, according to weather forecasters.

In the climate summary report for this month, which was released on Friday, the National Centre of Meteorology (NCM) said July is a summer month and will come with increase of temperatures. This is because the region and country are affected by the extension of thermal lows, the most important of which is the India monsoon low pressure, which raise the temperatures.

“The eastern mountains and southern parts of the country are exposed with clouds, where these clouds are developed due to mountains and high temperatures, associated with rain in the afternoon,” the NCM said in a statement.

“Some areas of the country are affected by extension of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) during this month, especially in the second half, which is accompanied with convective rainy clouds at times.”

Land and sea breeze circulations play an important role during the month of July, as the country is affected by southeasterly winds during night and morning periods, whereas northerly winds during daytime, according to the NCM. “The country is sometimes affected by fresh southerly winds, especially during the morning period. This may cause blowing dust,” said forecasters.

The relative humidity increases during some days in the early morning period over some areas and mist or fog may form during some few days of the month.
