Monday, the Director of Operations at ArabiaWeather Osama Al-Tarifi said that there will be a significant change in weather conditions during the next few hours, as the weather will be very cold, accompanied with strong winds, thunderstorms and heavy rainfall.

Tarifi added to Roya’s Akhbar Al Sabe’a that some regions of the Kingdom will witness hours of continuous heavy rain.

He pointed out that during the afternoon and evening hours, the impact of the air depression will deepen, as it is expected that a new air front will cross the Levant region, resulting in stormy, cloudy and rainy weather.

Tarifi also noted that during the afternoon and evening hours of Monday, there will be strong winds accompanied by strong gusts.

Additionally, he indicated that the temperatures will decrease in the coming hours, with temperatures in Amman ranging between six degrees during the day and four degrees during the night.

He explained that there will be showers of snow for a short period of time, especially over the high mountain heights,  noting that it is expected that showers of snow will fall over mountainous areas that are higher than 1,200 meters, and at times accumulate over areas that are higher than 1,300 meters, which include parts of the Sharah Mountains in the governorates of Tafilah and Ma’an.
