Unseasonably cold in Israel:

At Kibbutz Merom Golan, just west of the Syrian border, mercury levels plummeted to -8.3°C.

We usually get such low temperatures only in January-February, said Dr. Amos Porat, head of the Israel Meteorological Service’s Climate Department. “They are quite unusual for the beginning of December.”

Other temperature lows on Sunday morning included -3° in the Jezreel Valley’s Nir Haemek and -2° in the Negev community of Sde Boker, according to the IMS data. The Upper Galilee’s Kfar Blum was also unusually cold at -1.7°, as was Safed at 0.8°.

    This might be a few months old, but it is still valid and being improved upon, so there really is room for hope.
