We get a sand storm mainly twice a year,when the cool season ends(it`s not really winter)and once again when the summer ends.
Here is a picture I got in my e.mail of a sand storm that happend in Jiddah in April 2005.
it lasted 15 minutes and it was washed away with rain drops,,,then the real heat began!!!
When you plan a trip to Jiddah,have in mind that this city is located by the sea,so it`s humid all year round.
luckley everywhere you go it`s airconditioned,unless you wants to jog by the beach ;-)
I took this picture from my friend`s balcony just before the sunset....one of the most humid nights ever..as you can see,the air is filled with humidity
We don`t get much rain in Jiddah but when we do......this what streets look like,inspite of all the effort the goverment is doing,yet many streets still get flooded by rain.
So try to avoid going out on a rainy day in Jiddah ;-)
