The climate of Wadi Rum (Jordan)
Wadi Rum is a desert region is the southwestern part of Jordan. It is the main attraction in the country. Most tourists travel here to go on a jeep or camel safari for one or several days. Those who go on a safari which lasts several days spend the night in a Bedouin tent because no hotels can be found here. The area has been a Unesco preservation sight since 2011, mainly because of the rock paintings made by the Nabateans. During WW I this was the decor for the story of Lawrence of Arabia. Wadi Rum has a warm desert climate characterized by large differences in temperatures and low precipitation figures. During the summer daytime temperatures are about 30 degrees Celsius (86.0 degrees Fahrenheit) on average. During the night temperatures are about 20 degrees Celsius (68.0 degrees Fahrenheit). Winters are much cooler with average daytime temperatures between 10-15 degrees Celsius (50.0-59.0 degrees Fahrenheit). During the night temperatures are just above freezing point. During the coldest nights of the year subzero temperatures are not uncommon.
