The most recent weather forecasts suggest that significant portions of the country will experience increasing atmospheric instability starting from noon on Tuesday.

This instability will lead to rapid and notable weather shifts, including the rapid increase of cumulonimbus clouds and the occurrence of thunderstorms with rainfall.

Intermittent heavy showers are possible, accompanied by periods of hail and a risk of localized flooding in valleys.

Additionally, active winds with occasional strong gusts are expected, particularly affecting desert regions in the southern and eastern parts of the country.

Arabia Weather website advised citizens to remain cautious of raised dust, especially in desert areas like the Amman-Aqaba desert road, to exercise caution while driving in rainy conditions, and to be alert to the potential for flash floods in certain areas.
