Weather will remain chilly and occasionally rainy Sunday, forecasters say. The Sabbath saw unseasonably heavy rainfall in parts of the country, particularly in the north.

There were also unseasonable periods of rain in Israel's northern Negev over the Sabbath and into Sunday morning, which may continue as light showers throughout the day., meteorologists said. In northern Israel, thunderstorms are likely.

Rain showers are expected to grow lighter by Sunday afternoon, but are not expected to end completely until Monday afternoon.

Temperatures will rise mid-Monday, forecasters say, but will remain unusually low for the season.

Temperatures will continue to increase on Tuesday and Wednesday, hitting the normal range for the spring season toward the end of the week.
