Israelis heading out to the nation’s parks and picnic areas to celebrate Independence Day on Thursday will likely encounter unseasonably cool temperatures, potentially accompanied by bouts of rain.

The Israel Meteorological Service forecast partly cloudy skies with scattered showers in the North, hazy conditions in the South and a chance of isolated showers in the Center on Thursday.

As strong winds and cool weather prevail, snow may fall on Mount Hermon by nightfall.

In the Tel Aviv area, temperatures should range between 14°-19°, while those in Jerusalem should be between 9°-14°, according to the IMS. Beersheba temperatures are expected to be between 11°-20°, while those much farther south in Eilat should be between 16°-25°. In the North, the IMS forecast temperatures of 11°-16° in Katzrin and 12°-16° in Haifa.
