Summer springs back

The Bahrain Summer is finally here. It seemed like it would take forever to arrive after a rather prolonged winter but now that it has, it’s been quite sudden. And what’s strange is that there has been no spring because we’ve had temperatures suddenly shooting up to 28 degrees C from around 17 degrees C last week. This could mean only one thing – that we are in for a rather severe hot months, until at least the middle of October. Here’s welcoming the real Bahrain weather. The picnic’s over!
