Weekend Weather: Temperature Peak Friday, then Cooler

It will be hazy and warmer than usual, Friday, with temperatures reaching Sharav heatwave proportions in the Negev and along the Jordanian border. Winds of up to 65 kilometers/41 miles an hour expected, resulting in sandstorms in the south. Colder and moister air will move into the area in the afternoon and there's a chance of scattered evening showers, mainly in the north. There's a chance of isolated light showers, mainly in the north, on Shabbat and the strong winds will continue, bringing temperatures below normal and driving the haze away. Partial cloudiness will clear up a little on Sunday with a chance of very light rain in the morning. It will be fair on Monday with temperatures returning to above average.

Jerusalem, Haifa: 25Celsius/77Fahrenheit; Kinneret/Sea of Galilee: 28C/82F;
