The Jordan Meteorological Department reported that Jordan will experience continued atmospheric instability on Monday, with warm weather in most areas and relatively hot conditions in the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and Aqaba. Clouds will appear at various altitudes.

During the afternoon, rain showers are expected across the country, some heavy, accompanied by thunder and hail in certain areas. This could lead to floods and increased water levels in valleys and low-lying areas. Winds will be northeasterly, occasionally becoming moderate northwesterly, and may raise dust, particularly in desert regions.

Tuesday's weather will see a continuation of atmospheric instability, with warm temperatures in most areas and relatively hot conditions in the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and Aqaba. 

Rain showers are anticipated in various parts of the country, occasionally heavy with thunder and hail, especially in the east and southeast, leading to potential floods and increased water levels. Winds will be northeasterly to moderate northwesterly, occasionally strong, raising dust, particularly in desert regions.
