Extreme summer heat wave continues over the region

With sweltering temperatures and escalating humidity, Israelis continued to battle an extreme heat wave on Monday – the second such event to occur this month.

"We did have a slight drop in temperatures – compared to [Sunday] – of 1-2°C in the coastal plain, yet there was a significant rise of the relative humidity," Dr. Amos Porat, head of the Israel Meteorological Service Climate Department, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday. "This meant a rise in the heat stress until noon."
