Rain in August?

Residents of Israel’s populous coastal plain treated to pleasant temperatures and a rare summer rainfall

By Israel Today Staff |

Summer weather is consistently hot and dry in Israel. But on Thursday the day started with gray skies and pleasant temperatures throughout most of the country.

While meteorologists had already on Wednesday spoken of the possibility of light rain in the north and the coastal region, residents of the Sharon area (Greater Tel Aviv metropolitan region) were surprised by the heavy rainfall in August.

A meteorologist explained that light rain in August can happen, and has done so every few years. “In recent years, however, we had relatively warm summers, so there were no rains,” he said.

On Friday, things will go back to normal as the hot and dry weather returns.
