Weather warnings are continuing to make the news, as the Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD) has once again warned the Kingdom’s residents of the changes to take place in the next 48 hours.

In a statement released on Thursday, November 22, JMD stressed that temperatures will drop this evening and clouds will form at different altitudes, bringing strong winds and rain with them.

JMD is predicting light-to-medium-intensity rain, sometimes thunderous, in many parts of the Kingdom, which of course increases the risk of flooding in lowlands and valleys. 

On Wednesday, November 21, the Ministry of Agriculture urged citizens to take precaution and listen to the weather forecast. The ministry also warned farmers and citizens against picking olives during the rain, especially near valleys where floods may form.

Jordan was struck by disaster last month and earlier this month, when flash floods swept parts of the country, killing dozens of people.
