On Wednesday, the date of the summer solstice will take place at 7: 24 am, which will last approximately 93 days, ending on September 22. The Director of the Department of Meteorology, Engineer Hussein Momani said that the sun will rise from the extreme north-east corner of 61 degrees at 5:30 minutes, and absent at the maximum north-west corner of 299 degrees, at exactly 7:45 minutes, so the length of the day 14 Hour and 14 minutes, the longest day of the year, while the length of the night is 9 hours and 46 minutes, which is the shortest night of the year. He said that with the beginning of the summer coup, the sun will be completely vertical in the orbit of the cancer, which is located north of the equator by approximately 23.5 degrees and climate in this period begins the impact of hotwaves, which is the source of wind mostly from the north of the Arabian Peninsula due to the extended impact of the Indian seasonal low, The temperature rises to high levels during the heat waves to 45 ° C in most areas of Jordan, accompanied by an increase in water evaporation, outbreaks of diseases, sun strikes, extreme thirst, low pressure, appearance of some exotic insects. In the capital, Amman, the average temperature of the summer temperature is 9,31 and the average temperature is 4.18. The city of Oman experienced the longest wave of heat for six days in July 1978.

Climate scientists plan to expand data collection in polar regions
5/21/2017 12:00:00 AM
The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) announced on Monday that more than 50 air watchdogs and observatories from more than 20 countries will cooperate on expanding data collection dramatically in the polar regions. Under the leadership of the Alfred Figner Foundation in the northern German city of Bremerhaven, the project aims to send more meteorological balloons and buoys to better ways of documenting rapid climate change in the North and South Poles and also to improve weather forecasts. "Temperatures in the Arctic and parts of Antarctica are twice as fast as the rest of the world, causing the melting of glaciers, shrinking sea ice and ice cover," said project head Thomas Jong of the World Meteorological Organization. "The impact of this is felt in other parts of the world - as is evident in rising sea levels and changing weather and climate patterns." There are enormous problems in the Arctic and Antarctica. The extent of sea ice was at its lowest level in January since measurements began in 1979, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in February. In the Arctic, the volume of sea ice was below its 1981-2010 average of 9% while in Antarctica it was 23% lower. As ice melts, activities in polar regions such as tourism, new shipping routes and raw material extraction are increasing, adding to the risk, according to the Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
