Jordan weather overview

All but 10 per cent of Jordan is desert, which means that the country has predominantly long, dry, hot summers with chilly nights and cold, crisp winters. Rain in the desert regions is sparse, falling in short, intense bursts during the winter and spring. The most fertile part of Jordan is the hilly region in the northwest which experiences high rainfall between November and March when weather fronts blow in from the Mediterranean.

To the west of the hills lies the long valley where the River Jordan flows into the Dead Sea, which is 400m (1,300ft) below sea level. This valley has very hot summers, warm winters and little rain. Expect sun throughout the year in Jordan.

What to pack for Jordan weather

In the summer, light clothing is fine but take a warm wrap for protection against chilly desert evenings. Pack warmer clothing and be prepared for rain if visiting the northwest in the winter.
