AMMAN — Snowfall is expected in high mountainous areas of the Kingdom on Thursday night and Friday dawn, an ArabiaWeather statement said on Monday.

The snowfall is a result of a deep polar depression that is accompanied with a cold air mass, which is forecast to affect the Kingdom in the weekend, according to the joint forecasts of the ArabiaWeather and Jordan Meteorological Department. Heavy rain, lightning, thunder and hail are also expected, said the statement, adding that the depression will be accompanied by brisk winds that exceed 80 kilometres per hour.
