It won’t be plain hot on Shabbat. It will be boiling hot.
It gets even worse on Sunday, and a horrid heat wave will stick around for several days. Sunday will be the worst, when temperatures will reach 115 degrees Fahrenheit (47 Celsius) in Eilat, but the rest of the week simply will be a bit “less hot” but not “cooler.”
Even Jerusalem thermometers will hit 100 degrees (38 Celsius) on Sunday after reaching 95-97 degrees Fahrenheit (35-36 Celsius) on Shabbat.
The central plains, immediately east of the Mediterranean Coast, will be muggy, with the humidity at 70 percent at temperatures in the upper 90s.
Rare summer thunderstorms are expected in the Dead Sea and Eilat areas Sunday afternoon and evening.
Hold tight. Winter is on the way in about three months, and don’t start whining for summer when it snows.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
