From the majestic rose-hued city of Petra and the ethereal beauty of Wadi Rum to the rejuvenating waters of the Dead Sea and the bustling markets of Amman, Jordan in November presents a delightful tapestry of experiences that will captivate your senses and create memories to last a lifetime. Here’s what you need to know about Jordan weather in November and other tips for visiting this month.
Average Temperatures in Jordan in November
The scorching days of summer are finally gone. November is the beginning of the winter season in Jordan, and the temperatures make that clear. On average, temperatures typically range from 50°F (10°C) to 68°F (20°C) during the day, with temperatures dropping to around 41°F (5°C) at night.
As I always say, note that temperatures can vary depending on where you are in the country, so it’s a good idea to check the forecast for the specific regions you plan to visit.
Average Weather in Jordan in November
Despite the cold temperatures, the Jordan weather in November is quite comfortable for travelers; this is why it’s one of the most popular times to visit. It is one of the driest months in Jordan, with very little rainfall and mostly sunny skies.
However, it’s important to be prepared for the occasional shower or two, especially in the northern regions of the country. The weather is generally mild, but it can be quite windy at times, particularly in the desert regions.
Does it Snow in Jordan in November?
Well, typically, no. But it’s not impossible to see some snow in Jordan in November either. While it doesn’t typically snow in most parts of Jordan, it’s not unheard of for snow to fall in the higher elevations of the country, particularly in the mountains around Petra and Wadi Rum.
In case it snows while you’re there, you’ll be one of the few lucky travelers who get to see Jordan transform into a picturesque winter wonderland.
Travel Tips for Jordan in November
If you’re sold on visiting Jordan in November, here are a few travel tips to keep in mind before and during your trip.
- November is the end of the popular season and the beginning of shoulder season in Jordan, meaning there will be fewer crowds compared to the peak tourist season in the autumn months. However, popular sites like Petra and Wadi Rum can still attract tourists, so it’s recommended to plan your visit and book accommodations and tickets in advance.
- Southern Jordan – especially Aqaba – is a great destination to visit in Jordan; it averages almost 70°F (21°C) during the day, which is really nice if you’re coming from a northern, colder destination.
- As it is colder, I recommend adjusting what you pack for Jordan to add a few more cool/cold-weather pieces. I’ve lately become addicted to Unbound Merino, and it’s a great option for Jordan any season. In short, merino wool is wrinkle- and odor-resistant, antibacterial, and moisture-wicking – all good qualities for a material in a climate where temperatures range a lot from north to south and day to night.
