If you’re headed to Aqaba, you might want to reschedule your trip for another day.

The desert road leading from Amman to the port city is extremely dusty and visibility is almost non-existent.

Unsurprisingly, as a result of the extreme weather conditions, traffic, at some point in the day, was almost at a standstill.

Other parts of the Kingdom are experiencing similar weather conditions, including Amman, at a much lower rate of course.

Muddy rain is also expected to fall in some parts of the country, while strong winds will carry dust and sand with them.

Tonight will feel warm and dry, yet the air will remain dusty, which is why those with respiratory conditions are strongly advised to stay indoors.
