Super Hot and Rainy?

A possible new record was set in Saudi Arabia. Here’s an excerpt from Dr. Jeff Master’s Wunderground blog. “Pilgrims to the holy city of Mekkah (Mecca), Saudi Arabia must have been astonished on Tuesday afternoon, when the weather transformed from widespread dust with a temperature of 113°F (45°C) to a thunderstorm with rain. Remarkably, the air temperature during the thunderstorm was a sizzling 109°F (43°C), and the relative humidity a scant 18%”
