Forecasters: Relief from Qatar humidity is coming

The very worst of the sticky, humid days of summer may soon be behind us – just in time for the Eid Al Adha holiday.

But don’t expect it to get cold anytime soon, as Qatar forecasters are predicting hotter-than-usual temperatures to persist through September and October.

In recent days, humidity levels have reached 85 percent in Ruwais in the north and 75 percent in Doha, with temperatures hovering in the mid-40s in inland areas.

Experts from Qatar Meteorology Department (MET) have previously said that the steamy conditions would last until at least the first week of September.
