Israel’s rains came a little early this year on Sunday, at least in the north and central parts of the country.

In Nahariya, Haifa and nearby communities, residents were surprised to find raindrops pelting down.


The rain continued throughout the afternoon hours in northern and central Israel – but never made it to the south of the country, where Israelis had a beautiful, breezy autumn day. Seasonal temperatures dominated for the most part, with Jerusalem cooler than both Haifa and Tel Aviv, and Be’er Sheva warmer than all of the above during the day, and cooler than all during the overnight hours.

Rain is expected to continue into Monday morning, tapering off by midday with partly cloudy skies and rising temperatures.

Tuesday is Election Day and the weather is expected to be sunny and clear, with the temperature a bit warmer.
