AMMAN — The country will remain under the impact of a wet air mass accompanied by a cold upper trough on Thursday, according to the Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD).

The combined weather condition, which will cause a drop in temperatures and bring scattered showers, was forecast to start affecting the country on Wednesday night, the JMD said.

A drop in temperatures is expected on Thursday, when the weather will be cloudy and rainy in the northern and central regions, a JMD weather forecaster said on Wednesday.

Temperatures in Amman will reach a high of 22°C during the day, dropping to a low of 10°C at night, while winds will be northwesterly moderate to brisk, raising dust in the desert.

A further drop in mercury levels is expected on Friday, the meteorologist said, noting that the weather will remain cloudy and rainy at times, with temperatures in the capital ranging between a maximum of 20°C and a minimum of 9°C.

Cloudy and wet weather will continue to prevail on Saturday, when temperatures in Amman will reach 20°C during the day and drop to 10°C at night.

“The impact of the wet air mass and the cold upper trough is expected to ease off on Saturday night,” the meteorologist said, adding that maximum temperatures will rise to their annual average of 24°C during this time the year starting Sunday.
