The climate of Aqaba (Jordan)
Aqaba is located in the southwestern part of Jordan on the Gulf of Aqaba which is also known as the Gulf of Eilat. Its coastline is divided between four countries and many popular seaside resorts can be found along its coast. However, Aqaba is the only seaside of importance in Jordan. Aqaba is popular among tourists who come here to go diving and snorkeling. The temperature of the water is suitable for swimming all year round. One of the main reasons why Aqaba is as popular as it is, is because no taxes or excise duties have to be paid. Economically, the city is very important in Jordan because it is the only seaport in the country. Aqaba has a warm desert climate with hot summers and cool winters. Summers are hot with average daytime temperatures just below 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). However, peaks in temperatures of nearly 50 degrees Celsius (122 degrees Fahrenheit) are not uncommon. Winters are cool and nights may be cold. During the coldest nights of the year subzero temperatures are not uncommon. On average Aqaba gets less than 40 millimeters of annual precipitation. Most precipitation falls during early spring.
