Massive heatwave grills the Arab world, and the internet is melting

May 26,2019

A massive heatwave (from hell?) is currently grilling the Arab world, melting and affecting countries around the already-warm region.

With temperatures boiling up to 45 degrees Celsius in some cities, including Cairo and Jordan's Al Aghwar, it seems as though people are not enjoying the heat and sticky thighs.

Besides it being a free, communal sauna for everyone, the extremely hot weather has inspired an online meltdown through which Arabs are hilariously venting their frustration.

The past few summers saw several countries across the region experience unprecedented heatwaves.

Weather extremes aren't only limited to drier months. Forecasters have also recorded weather changes during winter in the past two years, with hail storms and snowfall hitting several parts of Saudi Arabia. Research conducted in recent years has warned climate change will have severe consequences in the region.

A study released in 2016 found that hot weather extremes brought on by global climate change could make parts of the Middle East and North Africa uninhabitable by the end of the current century.
