A cold air mass coming from Cyprus is expected to hit the Kingdom on Saturday morning, January 4, 2020, Head of the Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD), Hussein Momani said.

A drop in temperatures is predicted on Saturday, as the weather will be cold with partly cloudy to overcast skies.

During daytime, rainfall is in the forecast in the northern parts of the Kingdom. In the evening, the central regions and parts of the southern and eastern regions of Jordan will witness rainfall.

In the evening and late night, heavy rainfall is in the forecast and might be accompanied by thunderstorms and hail showers.

Showers of light snow are expected over the highlands early Saturday, with southwesterly winds that may cause dust to rise in the Badia region.

On Sunday, January 5, the Kingdom will remain under the impact of the cold air mass, as a cold, cloudy and rainy weather is expected.

Rainfall may be heavy at times, especially in the northern and central parts of the Kingdom.

Another weather depression is likely to affect the Kingdom on Monday, January 6, Momani stated, confirming that JMD will publish more details and the latest weather updates on this weather depression.

Momani called on citizens to take precautions and to stay away from valleys, lowlands, and watersheds, where floods are likely to occur.
