Qatar weather in November and December
Compared to the summer, though, conditions would be incredibly tough to play football in with temperatures approaching 50 degrees on some days.
How humid is Qatar?
It will be humid during the World Cup with humidity at 71%, which will be higher inside the stadiums. There will be air conditioning to counteract this problem. Grills in the stands and nozzles on the pitch will be used to pull in dirty air, all of which will be solar powered.
“We’re purifying the air for spectators. For example, people who have allergies won’t have problems inside our stadiums as we have the cleanest and purest air there is.
“Pre-cooled air comes in through grills built into the stands and large nozzles alongside the pitch.
“Using the air circulation technique, cooled air is then drawn back, re-cooled, filtered and pushed out where it is needed.”
