AMMAN — A tangible drop in temperatures forecast for Tuesday, when a depression and a cold air mass start affecting the country, the Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD) said on Monday.

The depression and cold air mass will bring rain and thunder to different parts of the country, meteorologist Raed Rafed said.

“Temperatures in Amman will drop by seven degrees to their annual average of 16ºC during this time of the year,” Rafed told The Jordan Times.

It will be cold and cloudy on Tuesday, with rain expected across the country, the weather forecaster added.

“Heavy rain is expected tomorrow afternoon in the northern and central regions, while other areas are expected to witness rainfall in the evening as the depression moves,” Rafed highlighted.

Temperatures in the capital will range between a high of 16ºC and a low of 6ºC, while winds will be westerly brisk, raising dust in the southern and eastern regions of the country, according to the JMD.

“We warn people against the possible formation of floods in low-lying areas and reduced visibility due to dust-raising winds and low-altitude clouds,” Rafed said.

A further drop in temperatures is forecast on Wednesday, when the weather will remain cold and partly cloudy, the JMD said.

“Scattered showers are expected during the day on Wednesday. The impact of the depression will start easing off in the evening,” the meteorologist noted.

Daytime temperatures in Amman will reach a maximum of 15ºC, dropping to a minimum of 5ºC overnight, while winds will be northwesterly moderate to brisk.

A slight rise in temperatures is expected on Thursday, when the weather will be relatively cold in hilly areas and fair in the rest of the country.

Mercury levels in the capital will range between 17ºC and 7ºC, while winds will be southwesterly moderate, according to the JMD.
