From the Arabian Weather Center - The latest weather maps resulting from what is called computer simulation in Arabian Weather indicate expectations that Jordan will continue to be affected on Saturday (Arafat Day) by the heat wave for the third day, resulting from the rush of a hot air mass from the desert of the Arabian Peninsula.

The same maps at the Arab Weather Center indicate that temperatures on Saturday are expected to remain higher than their usual rates for this time of year by around 8-10 degrees Celsius, so that the weather will be hot over the mountain highlands and in the late 30s Celsius, and extremely hot in the desert and The Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea and Aqaba areas.

Computer numerical models operated by the Arabia Weather Center also indicate expectations of a continued severe impact of the hot mass on the areas of the central and southern Jordan Valley, including the Dead Sea in addition to Aqaba, where maximum temperatures in those areas exceed the 45 degree Celsius barrier and even reach the end of the year. 40s in some places.

The winds are light and variable in direction, but in the afternoon they shift to moderate northwesterly winds, with sometimes active gusts that raise dust in the desert areas.

Important recommendations for dealing with the heat wave:

  • Avoid direct exposure to sunlight for long periods.
  • Drink plenty of cold fluids and refreshments, even at night, even if you do not feel thirsty.
  • Be careful not to leave sterilizers and any flammable materials inside vehicles.
  • Be careful not to leave children inside vehicles, even for short periods.
  • Do not throw cigarette butts or light fires in wooded and grassy areas to avoid fires.
