The climate of Amman (Jordan)
Amman is the capital of Jordan and is built on hills at an altitude between 700-1,400 meters. The first signs of civilization can be dated back to about 10,500 BC. Because of excavations we now know that these civilizations were highly developed and showed a great interest in art. Nowadays Amman has a population figure of about 2 million spread out over 19 hills. Amman has a cold steppe climate with warm and dry summers and mild winters that do get precipitation. A striking detail for the winters in Amman is that it may rain in the center which is located at an altitude of 776 meters while the western part of Amman which is located at an altitude of about 1,200 meters gets snow at the same time. Once every few years a snowstorm may occur in Amman causing about half a meter of snow to fall in the city.
