The AlOjeiri Scientific Center stated that starting from tomorrow, Sunday, May 12, 2024, the second phase of the "Kunah" season begins, during which shortened shadows are observed. The center added in a press release that there will also be an increase in the number of daylight hours, exceeding 13 and a half hours. The center mentioned that this period, known as "Al-Sharteen," is characterized by an increase in the movement of northern winds carrying dust and sand. "During Al-Sharteen, the weather is hot at midday, and it becomes difficult to stay outdoors during these times," it continued. The period lasts for thirteen days, followed by the "Al-Bateen" period, marking the end of the rainy season and the beginning of rising temperatures.
