Various Israeli organizations published warnings of dangers that could be caused by the storm.
After months of clear skies and warm weather, Israel is seeing some rain - but that comes with concerns for people's safety.
It is still unclear exactly how strong the snowfall will be in Jerusalem.
Winter has finally arrived: The rain is expected to spread to most parts of the country, and will likely be accompanied by lightning and thunderstorms.
The weather report stated that there would be local rainfall along with thunderstorms and hail in the south and on the mountaintops.
Flood warnings have been issued in southern Israel. Popular hiking trails and tourist spots in the Judean desert are also being closed.
“We were hanging out at an abandoned beach when lightning struck the sand and knocked us to the ground,” said Elazar Hazut of Beersheba from his hospital bed. “I ask for Israelis to pray for us.”
Facebook users from the center of the country reported that the storm affected areas from Hadera to Ashdod.
Another storm is expected to hit Israel on Tuesday.
Rescue services are standing by in case of floods.
