Climate: In general, the winter months (November-March) are cold and wet and the summer (April-November) is hot and dry. However, there are, as mentioned, varying climates. The temperature in Amman is around 10 degrees in January, rising to around 30 degrees in July. In Aqaba, January averages 15 degrees, running up to around 35 in July.
Best time to travel: Our spring (April-June) is the best time to visit. Temperatures are mild and the rain has usually stopped. Furthermore, the flowers are all in bloom and the springs are full of water. September until November (autumn) is also a good time to visit. During our winter months it can be cold and rainy, especially in the mountainous regions, where it also sometimes snows. However, this period tends to usher in very pleasant weather in Aqaba and around the Dead Sea. If you go during the summer (June until August), be sure you have headscarves, caps, sunglasses and a plentiful supply of water. You can expect extreme heat in this period.
