ghibli

(Also called chibli, gebli, gibleh, gibli, kibli.) A hot dust-bearing desert wind in Tripolitania (northwestern Libya), similar to the foehn.

In Morocco, the analogous gibla is a hot dry wind from between southeast and south. It means "the direction in which one turns," that is, the traditional direction of Mecca.
See chili, khamsin, sirocco, suahili.
