Israel has a Mediterranean climate characterized by long, hot, dry summers and short, cool, rainy winters (as modified locally by altitude and latitude). January is the coldest month with temperatures from 5-10˚C (41-50˚F), and August is the hottest month at 18-38˚C (64.4-100.4˚F). About 70% of the average rainfall in the country falls between November and March; June through August are often rainless. Rainfall is unevenly distributed, decreasing sharply as one moves southward. In the extreme south, rainfall averages less than 100 mm annually; in the north, the average annual rainfall is 1,128mm. During January and February, it may take the form of snow at the higher elevations of the central highlands, including Jerusalem.
