Jordanian Prime Minister, Abdullah Ensour, has issued a circular decreeing another one-off non-working public holiday in Jordan for tomorrow, Thursday, February 19, 2015, due to freezing weather conditions stemming from a polar front that brought heavy rain across the country and is forecast to bring snow in most areas tomorrow.

Last month (2015-01-10, 2015-01-07 and 2015-01-06), Prime Minister Ensour had already issued 3 separate circulars decreeing one-off non-working public holidays in Jordan for January 7, 8 and 11, 2015, due to the similar freezing weather conditions.

Announcement of weather-related non-working public holidays in Jordan have occurred in the past (2013-12-11, 2013-01-09, 2013-01-08, 2008-01-31 and 2008-01-30).
