Country braces for flash floods, strong winds, snow

Amid intermittent episodes of heavy rains throughout the day on Wednesday, Israelis braced themselves for even stormier weather forecast for Thursday and the weekend – including evening snowfall in the nation’s capital.

Showers occurred on and off on Wednesday from the North to the northern Negev.

Rains are expected to continue through Saturday, according to Israel Meteorological Service forecasts. Snow is likely to begin falling over Mount Hermon by Wednesday night and spread to the northern and central mountains, including Jerusalem, by Thursday evening, the IMS said.
