Heavy rain has been falling all day in most parts of Israel. Several streets in Nahariya in the western Galilee were drenched and closed to traffic. Ten families had to be evacuated from their flooded homes in the area, along with children in a nearby kindergarten. The storms are expected to ease on Thursday, but return again over the weekend. Jerusalem is forecast to reach only 10C today (50F), Tel Aviv a warmer 16 (61), Haifa 15 (59) and Eilat, with light rain, an unseasonably cool 17 (62).
