The last day of August saw light rainfall in the country's coastal plain, and the North. Army Radio reported drizzling on Mount Meron early in the morning as well as in Netanya and the Sharon region.


Unseasonably low temperatures, in what has been largely considered a mild summer, coupled with  a low pressure channel caused the rains.

Drizzles were reported in Netanya, Ra'anana, Hadera and Kfar Saba.

This is the second time rain has fallen in Israel this summer, an event which does not occur on a yearly basis.

Despite the temporary low temperatures, weather reports indicated summer was not yet coming to a close, even as students head back to school.

Temperatures will continue to rise towards the end of the week and into the next, with clear skies and plenty of sunshine in the forecast.
