The past week seemed like a dream – as if all of Israel skipped a few months and ended up in May. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed it well because winter should be making a comeback this week.
The average highs for the country for this time of year, according to the Israel Meteorological Service, is usually between eight and 10 degrees centigrade. However, the past week saw the mercury rise to 32° in some places with average highs for Israel reaching 21°-30°.
Two spots in the North even managed to break records for their high temperatures by a matter of 0.1° to 0.2°. On Wednesday at Kfar Bloom, in the Upper Galilee, temperatures reached 30.8° while at the IMS weather station in Tzemah, south of the Kinneret, temperatures reached a record-breaking 32°.
