Hot Weather Alert for Morocco

After a cool and wet spring, the hot weather has returned to Morocco. The coming week will be warmer across the country with temperatures in Fez in the high twenties and low thirties. However, it is unlikely that temperatures will reach Monday's heat, which saw some places record up to 40 degrees Celsius

According to Morocco's National Meteorology Directorate, maximum temperatures will range between 20 and 25 degrees on the reliefs of the Atlas, 25 and 30 of the Rif Mountains and near the coast, 31 and 40 in the Oriental and Saiss regions

On the plains of Tadla, Rhamna, Haouz, interior Souss, Chiadma, Abda, Doukkala, Chaouia and east of the southern provinces, temperatures will be between 36 and 42 degrees.

Minimum temperatures will vary between 6 and 12 degrees in the Atlas mountains, 11 and 16 in the Rif, and 15 and 20 near the coast.

Humidity is expected to remain low at around 30% in the Fez-Saiss region

And, while contemplating how to cool down, here is a little brain food ...

Minus forty degrees is the temperature where the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales correspond with one another (-40°F = -40°C). Forty is also considered a semi-perfect number owing to the fact that a subset of its divisors added together gives 40 (i.e. 1, 4, 5, 10, and 20).
