Jordanians should also be on the alert for periodic frosts and freezing temperatures, the company said, advising the agricultural and electricity sectors to take “the utmost precautions” from the beginning of January through around February 10 due to frosts and increased electricity consumption, Khaberni reported.

WASM predicted that Jordan will be hit with rain and very cold temperatures over the coming days, followed by a long-impact polar front from January 6–22, peaking from January 11–20. During the cold spell, the chance of snowfall will be very high in several regions.

Another polar front featuring high precipitation levels is expected to hit the Kingdom at the end of January, continuing into early February, WASM added.

The company urged Jordanians to keep abreast of weather updates, especially those related to torrential rains and flooding, and to follow the cautions of the Jordan Meteorological Department and the instructions of the Civil Defense and Public Security Directorates.
