August rain in Israel (illustrative)

Tuesday, 11 August 2020 | August rain fell across large swathes of Israel on Monday, a day after residents of the northern city of Haifa had their own shower.

The rain fell in areas including in Tel Aviv, the Sharon region, Gush Dan and the north, while drizzles were reported in Haifa, the Upper Galilee and the Sea of Galilee area. In Kibbutz Kfar Giladi on the Lebanese border, 2.7 mm [.1 inch] of rain fell in the last 24 hours. 

Temperatures were unusually low for August in northern and central Israel on Monday, with cloudy weather in some regions. The height of summer in Israel is normally marked by blue skies, sweltering heat and no rain at all. 

Further south, however, the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea and the Arava region were set for higher temperatures.

According to the Meteo-tech Meteorological Service, the relatively low temperatures and cloudy skies are caused by low air pressure over the eastern Mediterranean.

The rain could make a return in the north and center of the country on Tuesday, when there will be partly cloudy skies and temperatures below average for the season.
