After a summer of searing heat and record temperatures, Kuwait is still looking forward for the arrival of the rainy season. Relevant state bodies have been making preparations for weeks, with memories of the 2018 floods still fresh in many people’s minds, when the equivalent of around three months of rain fell in one day.

However, the rainy season has been delayed for a couple of days or even weeks, which is yet another sign of Kuwait’s ever unpredictable weather, according to a veteran Kuwaiti meteorologist.

Adel Saadoun, meteorologist at Al-Fintas Observatory said, “We expected this kind of weather from the end of October to early November, but Al-Wasem season was delayed.” While Kuwait has witnessed some drizzles of rain over the past couple of days, this ‘rainy weather’ is a far cry from heavy rains the country has seen in the past few years.

According to Saadoun, the delay in rain could be an indication of an especially cold winter. “There are some thunderstorms and lightning in the morning these days, which isn’t unexpected at this time of the year,” he said.

The winter season officially begins December 6 and lasts through February, but according to Saadoun, we can still expect the weather to continue being unpredictable. “There could be more rain in the coming weeks. Maybe we’ll witness another cold weather this year,” he added.

The period between December 5 and January 15 is normally cold and dry with strong westerly wind. Maximum temperature reaches around 13 degrees centigrade, and the minimum may reach 3.3 degrees centigrade, except for warm intervals resulting from the blowing of south easterly wind, in which maximum temperature could reach 23 degrees centigrade.
