Jerusalem Weather
Live Updated Forecast

The Jerusalem weather is absolutely amazing!

Weather in Jerusalem, Israel is so good because the city is situated on top 700+ meters mountains. Weather in Jerusalem is, by far, the best of all Israel weather and will make your Israel travel experience a wonderful one!

I remember those hot summers when I was traveling in Manhattan, or in Sydney (Australia) - when the weather is hot, you simply can't enjoy yourself. But in Jerusalem you will have a blast!

In fact, locals always say that it has the best weather in Israel. It so true!

The Best Time to Travel to Jerusalem (Weather-Wise Of Course!)

Jerusalem is lovely in summer time (April-October) and in Winter time (November-March) it can get cold, but not like in the U.S. or in Europe. Having said that, in the past few years we experienced SNOW in Jerusalem at least once each winter.

The problem with snow in Jerusalem is that since we are located in the Middle East, after all, we aren't that great in dealing with snow. So usually when it snows, the city is practically "shut down" - we just stay at home and wait for the snow to melt! so, try not to get here when it is snowing :)

In the summer you will enjoy warm, yet dry summers (much better than the humidity of Tel Aviv!) and in the winter you will need to wear your good coat and gloves  but you will enjoy crisp, amazing air - Jerusalem air!
