Jordan Waits for Snow
Heavy rain is expected to drench the entire kingdom this afternoon with snow predicted to fall in mountainous regions above 1,000 meters, according the Jordanian Meteorological Service.
A-Rai daily reports that the weather is expected to return to normal Saturday morning after nearly a week of extreme weather conditions.
Wednesday night, strong winds gusted up to 80 km/h and caused sand storms. The strongest winds ever clocked in Jordan were at 120 km/h and occurred about 15 years ago.
The recent storms dropped the heaviest amount of rain in the Ajlun district with 55mm and in Amman with 20 mm.
