Arabia Weather - There is no doubt that the autumn season is closely linked to the formation of instability in Jordan , and as it has become known to many, that instability is associated with sudden rainfall, which is sometimes heavy and causes torrents and floods in some areas. Likewise, instability is sometimes accompanied by precipitation. Cold pimples, which are sometimes dense and large in size.

 

There is no doubt that many witnessed the hailstorm that affected the capital, Amman, and caused a lot of damage to property at the beginning of last summer, which was caused by the Kingdom being affected by a strong state of atmospheric instability, which resulted in heavy hail falling in large and unprecedented sizes in the capital, Amman.

 

Could the hail storm occur again in Jordan? What are the scientific reasons behind heavy hail?

 

Hail initially forms when water droplets rise upward during thunderstorms. The ascending air current transports them to parts of the atmosphere where the air is cold enough to freeze the droplets. The moisture in the air accumulates on the outside of the ice droplets as they move through the air, causing them to grow. Hail grains are shaped like large balls.

 

Hail storms usually occur in the plain and tropical regions, where the surface temperature is high, where large thermal differences occur when cooler air comes into contact with the warm air present on the surface, so upward currents are formed, and the warm air rises to the high layers of the atmosphere in large and sufficient quantities to form hailstones of large sizes. big.

 

Returning to the main question, are conditions currently prepared in our region for the formation of new hail storms?

 

In fact, from our point of view here in the weather forecast team in Arabia Weather, we see that the possibility of such storms recurring is a rare occurrence in our region, and the reason for the formation of hail storms in this way requires large temperature differences, and the matter is different in the fall here, as the cold begins to affect the atmosphere. The Kingdom gradually, and this matter may result in temperature differences that are not sufficient to form strong hail storms, but it is sufficient to form cases of instability and heavy rainfall, especially since the recent hail storm affected the Kingdom in the summer, and the conditions are completely different from the systems in the fall.
