Published: Updated:

High temperatures and humidity are only the tip of iceberg for summer in the Gulf.

Welcoming the warm season, Saudi Arabia witnessed a massive and rather breathtaking display of a sandstorm in Riyadh on Thursday.

Saudi photographer Fahad Bin Zarah manged to capture the thrilling scene showing the moment a blue cloudy sky turned into a beige haze.

The kingdom has witnessed a series of dire weather over the last couple of weeks varying from sandstorms to showery rains.

Earlier this week, a sandstorm left a plane shaking violently as it attempted a landing at Jazan Airport in southern Saudi Arabia.
