Recent satellite images and radar data show the beginning of the impact of weather instability over parts of western Irbid, Jerash, Ajloun, and extending to Al-Salt. Some of these areas are experiencing varying intensities of rainfall, accompanied by hail showers - per ArabiaWeather.

Jordan is currently affected by a cold and maritime air mass accompanying a low-pressure system centered over Cyprus, resulting in a noticeable drop in temperatures and cloudy, rainy weather in most areas.

Heavy rainfall is expected at times in parts of the western regions, accompanied by thunderstorms and hail showers, leading to the formation of floods in valleys and low-lying areas. Westerly winds will be moderate to brisk, causing dust storms, especially in the desert areas.

Heavy rainfall is expected at times in some areas, especially in the south of the kingdom, including the city of Aqaba, accompanied by thunderstorms and hail showers, leading to the formation of floods in valleys and low-lying areas. By nightfall, the chances of rain will decrease in the northern and central regions, with southwesterly to westerly winds becoming moderate.
