Rare snowstorm hits Israel

Mixed precipitation expected throughout the country for the next 48 hours

JERUSALEM – It’s snowing in Israel!

At the moment, it's coming down lightly in Jerusalem, but hard in the north, particularly in the Golan Heights.

While it’s not often that Israel gets a “legit” snowfall, it’s happening now.

In Jerusalem, rain has been turning into sleet, then into hail, then back into rain as temperatures fluctuate around the freezing mark.

But around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday afternoon local time, actual snow flurries began in the Holy City.

And up north, the snow is sticking to the ground and beginning to accumulate.

Here are several videos shot by ALL ISRAEL NEWS staff and friends across the country.
