Max temperature reached is 52 degree
“Do not believe in fake news,” local daily Kuwait Times reported quoting meteorologist Adel Al-Saadoun, head of the Fintas Weather Observatory. According to report, he debunked social media reports that temperatures in Kuwait reached 62 degrees. Kuwait has only recorded temperatures of a maximum of 52 degrees centigrade, news paper reported quoting him as saying.
Never in history has the temperature in Kuwait reached 62. As we speak now, the temperature is 49 degrees Celsius (at 2
pm yesterday), but people have been posting images of 54, 56 degrees – the temperature inside the car is higher, but not as per our weather monitoring system.”
Saadoun said the mercury will continue to rise in the next few days till the end of July, but by the beginning of August, the heat will start subsiding.
He also appealed to citizens to avoid sharing fake stories that could psychologically affect people. “Wait for the weather expert to say something about the weather – do not post fake stories on social media,” he advised.
