Israelis are preparing for incoming stormy weather tonight (Feb. 9-10) that will include gale-force winds and rain, according to predictions by meteorologists.

As a result, the Israel Airports Authority (IAA) is calling upon travelers to plan to arrive at Ben Gurion International Airport as early as possible for scheduled flights, and to check the status of the flight with the airlines before setting out on the road.

Staff at the airport are in the process of securing and evacuating objects that could come loose in the wind, a spokesperson said. Airlines have received information about the possibility of delays due to the expected stormy weather ahead, the IAA said.

Passengers were warned to expect difficult road conditions and possible traffic jams; as usual, it is best to arrive three hours before scheduled departures.

Updated flight schedules are available on the IAA website and on its smartphone application.
