Weather in Israel

New arrivals living in Israel will find themselves in a nation with an incredibly pleasant climate.

Although the landscape transitions from mountains in the north and a hilly inland to a Mediterranean coastline in the east and the large, arid Negev desert in the south, summers are generally warm and dry, with average temperatures of 82°F (28°C), while winters are mild, with averages of 54°F (12°C), although Jerusalem can be particularly cold.

Weather in Israel is subject to regional variation and the most prominent fluctuations include the increased humidity found on the coast and frequent precipitation both in the north and inland.

Sunshine is abundant, and, during the peak of summer, the heat can feel oppressive. However, expats living in Tel Aviv will find some respite in the cool off-shore breezes. Winter can yield at least six to seven hours of sunlight a day, whereas in summer this figure rises to between 12 and 13 hours a day.

Rainfall occurs primarily between October and May, though the southern desert area is perennially dry.

Weather in Israel is generally favourable and is a great attraction for those moving there from areas of the world with less pleasant climates.
