Political tensions aren’t the only things heating up these days. The Health Ministry released a statement warning the public that June 17 will be a scorcher.

Temperatures will reach the high 30s throughout the country. In Tel Aviv, the heat is expected to climb to 37°, Beersheba 41° and Tiberias 43°.

The best ways to deal with the heat is to take cool showers and baths to help cool your body. It is particularly important to make sure to continuously drink water, wear sunscreen, and stay out of the heat as much as possible.

The ministry emphasized that the elderly and sick should avoid activities that may cause them to exert themselves.

For those without air conditioning at home, it is recommended to go elsewhere, such as a movie theater or mall, during the peak hours of the day.
