In Jordan, the months of May and October are the most pleasant, with temperatures ranging in the 70’s and 80’s during the day and from the mid 50’s through the 60’s at night. During the rest of the year, the temperatures vary from a daytime high in the 40’s through the 60’s to lows at night from the 30’s through the 50’s. Typically, some rain can fall during the December through February period, while May through October is virtually rain free. The contrast between night and day is dramatic, so take a sweater for chilly nights, even in summer.
