Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - For a third consecutive day, Jordan continues to bake in a blazing heat wave that pushed mercury levels well above annual average by almost 10 degrees Celsius and just two degrees shy from the 40C threshold in the highlands.

Despite the torrid weather, spotty and intermittent showers are forecast in the southern region, especially in the evening, the Jordan Meteorological Department said in its forecast for Sunday.

The Jordan Valley, 212 to 400 meters below sea level, and the Red Sea port of Aqaba are set to swelter in scorching weather today and for much of this week with temperatures breaking into the 44-45C vicinity.

In Amman and other highlands, north and south, daytime mercury levels will range between 34 and 38 degrees. In the late afternoon and evening hours, cooler weather is forecast as temperatures slide to around 25 and even 21 in some southern and northern highlands.
