Downpour is forecast to be heavy in the morning hours, accompanied by thunder and hail, which could lead to the formation of torrential rains in valleys and low areas, especially in the northern regions, the JMD said.

The JMD also warned of slippery roads in rainy areas and of low visibility due to fog over hilltops and plains.

In the evening, the rain will gradually stop and the weather will become cold and very dry. Light rain showers may occur at times between the night and dawn in the north and center, while winds will be southwesterly moderate in speed.

Slight rise in temperatures    On Sunday, temperatures are expected to slightly rise while still remaining around 3°C below annual average. Most regions across the Kingdom will remain cold with partial cloudiness and there may be a chance of light rain showers in the morning in the north.

On Monday, the Kingdom will be affected by a cold and moist air mass centered over the island of Cyprus. This will result in a significant decrease in temperatures.

By Monday afternoon, rain will start to fall in the north and gradually extend to the central and southwestern regions of the Kingdom.

Temperatures in Amman today would hit 6°C, dipping into 3°C at night, while the port city of Aqaba will see a fair 19°C, sliding to 10°C at night.
