Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance. – Samuel Johnson
This quote is an apt way to explain the power of perseverance. Every small step matters and consistency is the key to success. It is with this perseverance and dedication to preserve the environment that February 2021 witnessed a dip in average temperatures.
The city of Riyadh is dotted with air quality stations that monitor the quality of air to record environmental changes, weather predictions, concentration of pollutants and temperatures. On assessing the data recorded by these air quality stations for the month of February in 2021, it was observed that the average temperature for the city of Riyadh had decreased by one degree celsius as compared to last year.

On the other hand, the air quality station on Southern Ring Road recorded the highest temperature for February 2021. The highest temperature recorded by this station was 31.8 degrees celsius.
These air quality stations brought more good news with respect to dust cases in Riyadh.

This marked another win for the city of Riyadh in conserving the environment.
