Meteorologists are predicting an end to the past few days’ unseasonably warm and comfortable weather.

Beginning Monday, a dust storm is expected to roll in from the west, bringing with it winds as strong as 70 kilometers per hour (43 MPH) and a steep drop in temperatures. Evening thunderstorms will begin in the north, spreading a thick coat of snow on Mount Hermon and moving south overnight.

By Tuesday, heavy rains will be pelting the length and breadth of the country, with flooding expected in desert valleys in the West Bank and Negev.

Meteorologists expect no let-up in the downpour until Wednesday afternoon.
