Weather of Arabia - The quadrature of winter enters on the twenty-second of December, which coincides with the astronomical winter solstice and the start of the winter season in the northern hemisphere, so that the quadrature usually constitutes 30% of the total rainy season at the level of the Kingdom. And meteorological data indicate that the current rainfall performance, to date, suffers from a shortage in the amounts of rain that are supposed to fall for this time of the year in most regions, with the exception of the southeastern regions.

The results of the analysis of the same data indicate that the areas in which dams are concentrated in Jordan (north and center of the Kingdom) suffer as a whole from weakness in rain performance, except for Jerash and Madaba. And the capital and Tafila ranged between 59-66%, while the rain performance decreased significantly in Karak, recording very modest values of 26%. Similarly, the southeastern regions witness a distinguished rainy season, for example Ma’an station exceeded 70% of the full seasonal average (what was achieved of the actual amount of rain falling in this rainy season with the full annual rainy average, which ends in May), i.e. In other words, more than two-thirds of the average rainfall has fallen from the amount of rain that falls in the same area over a period of more than five months.

And despite the poor rainy performance to date, the current rainy situation for the year (2022/2023) is considered relatively better than the situation for the last season (2021/2022) in most regions of the Kingdom, according to the data of the Jordan Meteorological Climate Bank, and the specialists in the "Center" confirmed Weather of Arabia "that the final total of the rainy season does not depend on the rainfall only during the fall season, and that there are many rainy seasons that were weak in the fall season, while the quadrature of winter compensated for this drought, and the final rainy totals for the season ended with amounts of rain around or even higher Among the seasonal averages, as the square constitutes 30% of the total rainy season at the level of the Kingdom.

The main reason for the poor rain performance in Jordan during this period is the absence of weather conditions in both parts (depressions or cases of atmospheric instability), due to the flow of very cold polar air towards different regions of the European continent during the past days, especially the western parts of it, As temperatures fell below zero degrees Celsius (negative) in many European capitals, and snow fell in many parts of them, including the British capital, London. On the other hand, and in such weather patterns, the regions of eastern Europe and western Asia are affected by air elevations, and this led to the lack of cold air masses that cause depressions and instability to reach the Levant region and temperatures to rise more than their rates. Much accustomed.

And the mercy of God Almighty remains above everything, and we ask the Lord Almighty to grant us relief.
