Winter weather is back for a spell

Rainfall will continue throughout the day in most parts of Israel with accompanying winds tapering off around 8:00 p.m. Temperatures are expected to stay between 8 and 15 degrees centigrade (46 -59 degree fahrenheit)  in most parts of the country.

Highway 90 between Ein Gedi and Ein Bokek in the area around the Dead Sea has been closed to traffic until further notice due to a high risk of flash flooding in the area.

Drivers are warned to drive with caution and avoid flash floods throughout the remainder of highway 90 from the Dead Sea to through the south eastern Arava.

The Hermon ski resort has also been closed due to the weather and the thick layer of fog and strong winds that are buffeting the mountain.  

The mountainous regions throughout Israel extending from Hevron up until Tiberias have a high chance of rain expected again tomorrow, however the rain in the coastal region should be ending tonight according to the forecast.
