According to figures released by the Israel Meteorological Service at the start of December, Israel in November recorded some of its lowest ever rainfall levels in 55-70 years (when records began). It was also the hottest November in 60 years.
The rain and cold weather Israel is currently experiencing will continue until tomorrow, when a new cold front is due in – bringing thunderstorms, high winds and low temperatures to all parts of the country. There’s even a chance of snow in Jerusalem.
This week’s photo of the week was taken in Jerusalem during the current storm by Miriam Alster of Flash90.
