100% Humidity to come in Qatar.....taken from Gulf Times

The humid weather that Qatar is experiencing since Monday looks set to last until the first week of September.

Salaheldin al-Hassan, a forecaster at the Qatar Meteorological Department, told Gulf Times yesterday that the high humidity was caused by the seasonal northeasterly winds.
“The winds originate from the Indian Subcontinent due to the effects of the Indian monsoon currently active over that region,” said the forecaster. “As the winds blow in, they pick up moisture from the evaporation of the sea waters in the Gulf, thus causing the humidity.”
Humidity levels are expected to stay between 70 and 90% during this period. However, no rain is expected.
“It is possible that the humidity level may even peak at 100% in Mesaieed and Doha over the next few days,” Salaheldin said.
“The humid season usually starts in mid-July, but northwesterly winds from the deserts of Saudi Arabia blew longer than expected, delaying its onset. It’s most probably due to the global warming that these changes have occurred,” he added.

100% humidity is mist.

Humidity is a measure of the usage of the capacity of the air to hold water.

The hotter the air the higher the capacity.

So there will be more moisture in air at 40oC than there would at 20oC.

90% humidity means that the air at the temperature is holding water up to 90% of its capacity to hold it.

If it reaches 100% the air can hold no more water and it will start to precipitate out as mist.

This is what happens when clouds form which is why they have flat bottoms. As the air cools the humidity rises until 100% then the water appears

Hungary heatwave kills hundreds

Budapest ... Up to 500 people have died in the past week from a heatwave in Hungary, a top health official has said.

High temperatures across south-east Europe have been blamed for dozens of other deaths, mostly in Romania.

Heatwave fuels Greek forest fires

Dozens of forest fires have broken out across Greece, killing two men who were helping fight the fires ... The heatwave, one of the worst in Greek history, has also been blamed for the deaths of at least nine other people.

Temperatures have now dropped to below 40C after a nine-day period in which the mercury hit 46C in some areas.

Temperatures in Bucharest peaked at 45C on Tuesday. About 30 people are thought to have died so far as a result of the heat.

Two men in Turkey also died of heat-related heart attacks, while three elderly people died in Cyprus.

Fears as floods loom in new areas

Fresh floods have hit Oxford while residents further along the River Thames have been warned that water levels are likely to peak later. Homes were evacuated in Oxford overnight while places including Reading, Henley and Caversham are braced for similar flooding.

About 350,000 people in Gloucestershire without tap water are getting supplies, but could be cut off for up to 14 days.

There's loads more from all around the world ....
