February is one of the coldest months in the Israeli weather, and temperatures usually are between 9-19 Celsius (48-66 Fahrenheit). in the past week the temperature suddenly became higher and people got a sneak preview of the Israeli spring.
The sky where blue, no rain and temperatures high enough to drive many to the beaches and for a winter swim. The parks where full of visitors and long shirts replaced jackets and coats. Needles to say children had so much fun during the past week and still remains to be seen is the Purim weather forecast, as in many past years the time of the Jewish holiday is a rainy one and kids are having hard time wearing their holiday costumes.
