Weather in Israel

Temperatures vary greatly depending on the time of year. December and January are the coldest times of year, with snow falling in the north in places such as The Golan and the Galilee. Skiers and snow boarders love to travel to Mount Hermon where they can, for a short time, enjoy their winter sports. Even Jerusalem sees snow, turning it into a beautiful picture postcard.

Weather in Israek

Now, this being one of the most staple ingredients of conversation for British people, we couldn’t avoid providing you with a good overall perspective on the subject of weather!

However, for tourists that want some sun, Eilat is the perfect winter destination. Set on the southern tip of Israel, it dips into the Red Sea, and it is never too hot in the winter. It’s great for activities as well as sunbathing and tax-free shopping! The coastal town of Tel Aviv is just cool and a light weight jacket would suffice.


 

It gets hot in the summer, between June and September. Some places are humid and some have a dry heat that is much more bearable. Tel Aviv, Haifa and Tiberias are very humid in the height of the summer season in the months of July and August. However, Tel Aviv's shopping centres are air-conditioned and the sea provides a refreshing cool down. Jerusalem, Eilat and the Dead Sea have a dry heat, but it’s not recommended that you travel to the Dead Sea area in the scorching heat of 100 degrees!

 

For moderate temperatures, the best seasons to travel to Israel are spring and autumn, in the months of March, April, October and November.
