How hot does it get in Jordan

You have to take into consideration that Jordan has different climatic zones, which are dependent on the latitude and altitude, so it is not easy to give an answer to that question. The Dead Sea (410 metres below Sea level), and Aqaba on the southern tip of Jordan by the red sea are relatively warm throughout the year, and can get very hot in the summer months of July and August. Nevertheless, all areas of Jordan have low humidity, so the heat is usually bearable even in the peak of summer. The western highlands, which span almost the whole length of the country are cooler in the summer, and can be pretty cold in winter, with occasional snowfall about once every other year in the northern peaks, Amman and around the Petra region, though the snow rarely settles for more than a day or two. Summer nights in the highlands are usually cool.
