Weather of Arabia - Muhannad Fakhouri - In these days, we remember the historic hail storm that affected some areas of the capital, Amman, on the morning of Monday 5/29/2023, when the Kingdom was under the influence of a strong state of air instability, as a result of which strong cumulonimbus clouds formed, known as With nimbus clouds, it was accompanied by heavy rain and heavy hail, in addition to strong thunderstorms.

Large amounts of hail fell in some areas of the capital

 

Some areas of the capital also witnessed unusually large hailstones, such as the areas of Shafa Badran, Jubaiha, and west of the capital, Amman, where strong thunderstorms formed, accompanied by hail and falling winds accompanying these storms, as these clouds accompanying this storm grow in the layers of the atmosphere. All and reach levels with a high vertical extension, then the temperature at that level reaches the freezing point, where the frozen water droplets try to descend to lower layers, but the updrafts bring them back up to cover new ice layers, and so on... until they overcome the updrafts, to reach... to the surface of the Earth and sometimes accumulate and cause damage.

 

Material damage caused by this storm

 

It should be noted that this storm, as a result of heavy and large hailstones falling, led to many material damages, which particularly harmed the bodies and windows of vehicles.

 

Will this situation be repeated soon?

 

In fact, according to the latest updates received from us at the “Arab Weather” Center, there are no indications that this situation will be repeated in the foreseeable future, knowing that such cases are unusual in Jordan and do not occur again. Rather, they are considered rare and exceptional cases in the Kingdom.
