The JMD warned of flash floods in valleys and low areas, especially in the north and center regions, including the Dead Sea. It also warned drivers of slipping on roads due to the expected rainfall and low horizontal visibility due to the fog formation and low clouds over mountain heights, as well as the heavy wind speed, and low horizontal visibility due to the fog formation and low clouds in Badia areas due to dust raised by the wind.
