What are the rainiest areas in Jordan?

 

The far northwestern regions of the Kingdom are considered the most exposed to rainfall throughout the year, as a result of their proximity to the path of air depressions and the humid air currents accompanying them, coming directly from the Mediterranean Sea towards the region, which makes them the most likely to receive rain.

 

In general, the governorates of Ajloun and Balqa are considered the rainiest during the annual rainy season of the Kingdom, so that the areas of the Anjara Mountains south of Ajloun and the Zay/Um Jawza region in the north of Balqa have the highest total rainfall ever, with annual quantities approaching 650 mm.

 

In second place are some areas of Irbid Governorate (north and south), in addition to the high mountains of Jerash and then north of the capital, Amman: such as the areas of the University of Jordan, Sweileh, Khalda, and Jubaiha, with an annual total approaching 500 mm .

 

While the Gulf of Aqaba region and the southeastern and eastern desert regions are considered the least rainy areas in the Kingdom, with an annual total that does not exceed 40 millimetres.
