Riyadh — The National Center of Meteorology (NCM) has reported that the maximum daytime temperatures at the Holy Sites during the 2022 Hajj season will reach 42-44 degrees.
NCM reports that the Holy Sites could also witness surface wind activity during the day.

“The general wind direction will be northwesterly to west,” NCM noted.
NCM also reported chances of rain and thunderclouds forming on the heights of the southern Makkah region.
These cloud formations could take place during Dhu Al-Hijjah 9 to 13. And temperatures may affect the holy sites with the dust wind activity.
It is noteworthy that the Al-Mashaer Bulletin, which the Ministry of Hajj published in the year 1429 AH titled Classification of Hajj years from 1201 AH until 1500 AH, states that this year’s Hajj would be the penultimate summer season of Hajj for pilgrims.
The summer season Hajj has almost completed its seven-year cycle, which began in 1437 AH and ends with the Hajj in 1444 AH.
