Oasis: Get ready for a record Ramadan

We're in for a hot Ramadan this year. How hot?

We're in for a hot Ramadan this year. How hot? With the Holy Month falling in late July and mid August, it should be one of the warmest in 33 years. There are no official temperature records that date back that far, so we extrapolated using the highs and lows from the last 12 months on this circular calendar to illustrate the level of heat we'll be dealing with and compare that with Ramadans dating back to 1979, the last time it fell back into July.

Ramadan Kareem.
