Thanks to its diverse landscapes, including high altitude and desert regions, the weather in Jordan can vary dramatically throughout the year. The best time to travel is between March and May, when temperatures are around 68°F (20°C) and wildflowers are blooming across the country.
The hottest months are June to September, when temperatures can soar to over 104°F (40°C) and hot winds are known to affect the cities in the south particularly badly.
Though it is a short season (mid-September to mid-November), autumn is another good time to travel to Jordan. The short end of summer rains mean the temperatures are cooler and the countryside starts to look lush again during these months.
Between December to February the popular destinations of Petra and Wadi Rum can become very cold, however Aqaba in the south remains warm (at around 75°F or 24°C) and pleasant.
