Rain is expected in the southern regions of the Kingdom, including the southern valleys, Wadi Araba, Aqaba, and parts of the southern Badia.

The Kingdom will be hit with unstable wind activity originating from the Red Sea depression coming from Saudi Arabia, in addition to a very cold air mass located in the upper layers of the atmosphere.

Fog is expected to start forming in the late hours of Sunday night and early hours of Monday morning in the desert and southern regions.
