A new depression on Tuesday evening, followed by a widespread freeze ... What is the truth about snowfall?

<p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"><span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Mohammed Aouina- It is</strong> expected that the Kingdom and the rest of the countries of the eastern Mediterranean basin will be affected by a <strong>highly effective</strong> air depression associated with a very cold and polar air mass rushing towards the region, starting from the <strong>evening</strong> hours <strong>of Tuesday</strong> and its effect extends until the hours of <strong>Wednesday / Thursday night</strong> , and the effect of this is associated with The air depression, with remarkably low temperatures, rain and snow, God willing.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>Tuesday evening .. The Kingdom is gradually crossing an air front of polar origin attached to the depression</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">The Kingdom gradually crosses with the hours of <strong>Tuesday evening</strong> the air front, so that the temperatures decrease significantly and the wind speed increases, and the rains begin to be regular and intense, and be heavy at close intervals and accompanied by thunderstorms and hail in the north and center of the Kingdom, and the rain gradually extends towards the southern regions <strong>shortly after midnight</strong> .</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>The polar front deepened with the hours of dawn and Wednesday morning</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">Gradually, the opportunity opens with the <strong>hours of dawn and Wednesday morning</strong> for snowfall over the peaks of the high mountain heights in the south of the Kingdom, which <strong>accumulate periodically</strong> , and it is not unlikely that some snow showers will fall over the high mountain heights, including the heights of the capital, Amman, which exceeds <strong>1050-1100 m</strong> with the possibility The occurrence of <strong>limited accumulations if they do occur,</strong> <strong>but it is not expected that the accumulation of disruptive to life in the capital during the period of influence of this polar mass.</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">During the <strong>day on Wednesday,</strong> the Kingdom continues to be affected by the same depression, and rains fall in all regions and are heavy at intervals and sometimes accompanied by showers of dense cold, and the opportunity for high altitudes continues with snow showers that are mixed with rain and hail sometimes.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">This depression is expected to significantly improve the performance of the rainy season, as it is accompanied by good and significant amounts of rain throughout the Kingdom&#39;s regions.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>A large-scale wave of ice affects the Kingdom on Wednesday / Thursday night.</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">With the <strong>early evening and night hours, the</strong> air activity ends in most regions of the Kingdom, and then <strong>a strong wave of freezing begins in large areas of the Kingdom, and</strong> warns against driving on roads throughout the heights of the Kingdom, including the heights of the capital, Amman, for fear of slipping due to the freezing of rainwater on them.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:18px;"><strong>Air mass distribution in the European continent and the Mediterranean</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">The effect of this depression comes after the continued accumulation of an extremely cold polar air mass over the Black Sea and Turkish lands, and this coincides with the eruption of an air high towards the west and south of the European continent, which led to the formation of an air depression off the Syrian coast.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">This depression is considered the coldest so far during the current rainy season, but the accompanying coldness of the depression is <strong>not enough to turn this depression into a comprehensive snowstorm.</strong></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">The reason for this is that the polar air does not deepen enough in the surface layer (at an altitude of 1450 meters above sea level), which does not allow the temperature to decrease and the rain turns into snow in large areas.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;">Whereas, it seems that the opportunity is ripe at the end of this month - January / January - and also for the rest of the current winter season, for the Kingdom to be affected by air depressions accompanied by cold and very cold air masses that bring snowfall to the heights of the Kingdom, as many important areas in the European continent are affected by an air height, and it is expected Its continuation during many periods, and this in turn raises the chances of very cold air masses pushing towards the eastern basin of the Mediterranean Sea, God willing.</span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"> <span style="font-size:16px;"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/uploads-2020/nehhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhha_0.jpg" style="width: 800px; height: 523px;" /></span></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p><p style=";text-align:left;direction:ltr"></p>
