Temperatures Wednesday will be similar to those Tuesday, forecasters say, but winds are expected to pick up along the coast. Rainfall is expected to begin on Wednesday evening in the north, and to spread down the coastline during the night.

Rain is expected to continue Thursday in central and northern Israel, and to be accompanied by occasional thunderstorms. Light rain may fall in the northern Negev as well.
