When to go and weather

 

High Season (Mar–May)

  • Perfect weather throughout Jordan with warm days and cool nights.
  • Northern Jordan is blanketed in wildflowers in April.
  • Reserve rooms in main tourist areas and expect higher rates.

 

Shoulder (Sep–Feb)

  • The best time to visit the Red Sea; prices in and around Aqaba rise accordingly.
  • Bitter nights in the desert with rain or snow curtail many activities, such as camping.

 

Low Season (Jun–Aug)

  • The desert in the middle of the summer is extreme. Temperatures throughout Jordan can be stifling.
  • Prices are at their best but many places close in the low season.

 

WEATHER and CLIMATE

Jordan has a hot, dry climate characterized by long, hot, dry summers and short, cool winters.   Typical of a Mediterranean style climate, there is a rainy season from November to April and very dry, often hot weather for the rest of the year.  Snow is not uncommon in the winter in the mountainous regions.  The climate is influenced by Jordan's location between the subtropical aridity of the Arabian desert areas and the subtropical humidity of the eastern Mediterranean area.  Especially in the summer, it is important that you drink enough liquids in order to prevent dehydration. 

In general, the farther inland from the Mediterranean Sea you travel, the greater are the seasonal contrasts in temperature and the less is the rainfall.

January is the coolest month and August is the hottest.  Average temperatures and precipitation varies as seen in the below.
