According to Arabia Weather, there will be no weather depression in the coming days, but temperatures will rise to several degrees higher than their usual levels. The weather maps indicate that temperatures will continue to rise, causing temperatures to increase by about 10°C from their expected daily average for this time of year.

As a result, the weather will be warm in most regions during the day, and the nights will be noticeably less cold than they are now.

Highest rainfall in three decadesMeanwhile, the director of the Jordan Meteorology Department, Raed Khattab, announced that the first half of February saw the coldest temperatures and the highest amount of rainfall in three decades.

Khattab stated that the Kingdom was affected by three air depressions during the first half of February, accompanied by air masses of polar origin, which led to a significant drop in temperatures, heavy rainfall, and snowfall.

The accumulated rainfall during these depressions contributed to improving the current rainy season, raising it in most areas of the Kingdom to levels ranging from 2 to 34 percent of the general seasonal average.

Khattab added that climate statistics indicate that the amount of rain that the capital witnessed during the first half of February was the highest for the same period in 30 years.

Temperature fluctuationsThe average temperature during the first half of this month was the coldest for the same period in three decades as well, shared with the year 2005.

The maximum average temperature in the capital, Amman, during the first half of this February was 9.5°C, which is four degrees lower than the general average for the same period.

The minimum average temperature was 3.5°C, which is 1.2°C lower than the general average for the same period.
