Record heat is expected in the coming days in Morocco, after weeks of weather fluctuations. The kingdom has experienced drastic temperature changes in recent days ranging from heavy rains to very hot days.
On Tuesday, the General Directorate of Meteorology announced in an alert bulletin, its heat wave forecast including temperatures between 37 and 42 degrees, from Thursday until next Saturday, and this in a number of regions.
The management indicated, in an orange alert bulletin, that the areas concerned by the alert are the provinces of Beni Mellal, Fkih Ben Saleh, Settat, Youssoufia, Marrakech, Chichaoua, El Rehamna, Kalaat Sraghna, Ouazzane, Taounate, Sidi Kacem, Sidi Slimane, Khemisset, Zagora, Tata, Oued Eddahab and Aousserd.
These provinces and other surrounding ones will experience all these heat records which already give a glimpse of the summer season which awaits Morocco in July and August, the two hottest months of the year.
The weather forecast for Morocco in the coming days coincides with warnings and alerts in Europe regarding weather fluctuations during this summer, which is expected to register record temperatures.
According to Hussein Youabd, head of the communication department at the meteorology directorate, the heat wave that a number of regions of the kingdom will experience until the end of the week remains “normal”, especially since we are dawn of the summer season, a season characterized in recent years by unstable weather.
In a statement to MoroccoLatestNews, Hussein Youabd indicated that the country’s weather is expected to experience heat waves during the summer, affected by masses of hot and dry air coming from the Sahara desert, explaining that the Kingdom’s weather conditions will be largely affected by changes in the global climate.
Separately, the Head of Communications at the Meteorological Directorate noted that as the onset of summer approaches, “weather conditions will be characterized by volatility and more heat waves”, noting however that this phenomenon “remains normal” given the geographical location of Morocco.
