Rain falls in Tel Aviv, Haifa, western Galilee
Rain fell in Tel Aviv late Friday morning as well as in other areas of central and northern Israel, including Haifa and the western Galilee.
The rain was forecast to spread to the South, and continue until Sunday.
A drop in temperatures, as well as storms, was also expected.
In August, light rain fell in Tel Aviv and other areas of central Israel which marked the first time that rain had fallen in Israel during the current summer, a rare occurrence that does not repeat itself on a yearly basis.
