Winter – such as it is – is coming, a Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology official warned yesterday.
Ministry spokesman Mao Hak said yesterday that seasonal rains are expected to taper off in mid-November, with cooler winds sweeping into the Kingdom from Siberia and Tibet, promising a “winter” even cooler than last year’s, in which some areas saw temperatures as low as 18 degrees.
While the brief annual cool spell offers relief to some, Hak warned that those at high risk of illness should take extra care.
“So the people living in high and lowland areas should be aware and pay attention to the health problems, especially in children and old people, that may be caused by the cool weather,” he said.
