As of Wednesday afternoon and towards the evening, Jordan is expected to be affected by a weather depression coming from Turkey, moving away from the Kingdom and causing partly cloudy to cloudy weather, Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD) stated.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms are expected to occur at times in the northern parts of the Kingdom, accompanied by westerly winds, gradually extending to the central and southwestern regions.

In the evening, weather is expected to be generally cold in most areas, with a chance of rain showers as of Wednesday afternoon and evening until early Thursday in the northern and central parts of the Kingdom and in some parts of the southern mountains.

JMD issued a series of warnings, notably:

  • Risk of slippery roads during rainfall
  • Risk of flooding in lowlands and valleys, especially in the northern areas of the Kingdom
  • Low visibility in the evening and at night due to dust especially in Badia
  • Low visibility in the mountain areas due to fog
