According to the JMD report, the weather is cold at night, with southeasterly light winds, warning of the risk of low horizontal visibility due to the fog formation in the early morning hours over hilltops.


On Sunday, the Kingdom is affected by a summer-like air mass (khamaseini spell), as mercury is set to rise "significantly," higher than its seasonal average by about 6-8 degrees Celsius, and the weather will be warm and dusty, especially in the Kingdom's southern and eastern regions.


In addition, showers of rain are also possible occasionally, especially in those areas, with southeasterly to southwesterly active winds, accompanied by strong gusts, sometimes with a speed exceeding 70 km/hour.

The JMD warns of the danger of low visibility and sometimes its lack thereof due to sandstorms, especially in the Kingdom's southern and eastern regions.

On Monday, a slight drop in temperatures is expected and the weather will be pleasant almost countrywide, and warm in the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea.
The minimum and maximum temperatures in Amman range between 8-17 degrees Celsius, in the Dead Sea 14-25 degrees Celsius, and in the Gulf of Aqaba 14-26 degrees Celsius, according to the (JMD) report.
