Israel weather overview

More than half of Israel is desert and there are pronounced differences in the climate between the Negev desert region and the fertile north of the country. In the North, a Mediterranean climate prevails bringing hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Frost and snow are virtually unheard of but winter rain comes in short, intense bursts, so be prepared.

On the coast, the summer weather is muggier and afternoons, when sea breezes disperse some of the humidity, are the most pleasant time of the day. In the inland hills around Galilee, summer daytime conditions are dryer and more pleasant but nights can be chilly and winter brings both heavy rainfall and occasional snowfalls. Beyond the hills to the south lies the desert where rainfall is low and localised, taking the form of sudden, intense showers during the winter months.

Daytime summer conditions here can be very hot, especially when the warm Khamsin (or, in Hebrew, 'Sharav') wind blows but nights are chilly and crisp. Israel is a very sunny country which has made it a popular holiday destination throughout the year but an especially good option for winter sun.

What to pack for Israel weather

Pack light clothing for the summer with warmer cover-ups for winter visits to the hills or Galilee and nights in the desert. Include a light scarf in early summer to protect yourself from the dusty Khamsin winds.
