The unseasonable weather that began on the last day of Pesach continues as thunderstorms have been ongoing in Yerushalayim since the early hours of the morning. There is continuous lightning and hail accompanying heavy rainfall.
While temperatures earlier were unseasonably cold, this is not the case today as the temperature on Thursday morning 27 Nissan in the capital is 16C (60F). Heavy rainfall is reported in other areas of the country too and forecasters predict the storm will continue until Thursday evening.
On Sunday YWN-ISRAEL reported the Sanzer Rebbe Shlita explained the unseasonable weather, labeled “bizarre” by forecasters, is actually a bracha because of shmitah.
