Amman, Sep. 18 (Petra) — Monday’s weather update of the Jordan Meteorological Department (JMD) presented a picture of varied temperatures across the country. While the mountainous regions and plains are expected to enjoy mild conditions, the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and Aqaba are gearing up for a day of scorching heat.

Meteorologists also note that the prevailing winds, blowing from the northwest, will carry a moderate breeze, with intermittent gusts, particularly in desert areas.

The weather conditions will maintain their mild character on Tuesday, as the temperature will remain moderate over the mountainous terrain and plains, while the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and Aqaba will continue to experience higher temperatures.
