Winter in Israel (PICTURES)

With the winter in Israel fully upon us, we thought it might be an idea to bring you some amazing pictures, just to prove to you that, yes, Israel does have a winter!

Of course, there are some beautifully sunny days during the winter, but when winter hits the Holy Land, it really hits (even if very briefly!).

This last week has seen some of the worst winter weather in Israel for some years, but it has made for some spectacular viewing and some spectacular winter photos. Floods in Tel Aviv, snow in Jerusalem and the north, and yes, single-digit temperatures throughout the country!

    I was in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem just a week after those pictures and the weather was awesome though. Well, better than the Scottish summer for sure. I was lucky.

      Yes, the weather was awesome for a couple of weeks, but winter’s back today with a vengeance! Personally, I love Israeli winters!
