AMMAN — A rare polar cold air mass is expected Saturday night and is currently “gradually approaching and arriving in the eastern Mediterranean region at this time of the year and rushing from central Europe and staying in the region for several days”, according to Arabia’s weather.اضافة اعلان

This is expected to result in a considerable drop in temperatures, by 10 degrees Celsius, according to the forecast. In the southern heights, it is expected to drop below zero Celsius at night, with strong winds. 

“This mass is accompanied by a drastic shift in the weather from Saturday to winter, as it is generally cold and partly cloudy in most regions, with strong winds blowing most of the time,” the report said.

Showers of rain and hail are expected in the north of the Kingdom, and it is possible that some of the showers are mixed with snow over the summits of the northern heights (Ras Munif, Thagret Asfour, Jabal Em al-Darj, and Al-Qaeda Triangle near Anjara), according to the site.
