Temperatures will rise Friday, particularly in the mountains and away from the coast, weather forecasters say. The end result will be a day that is significantly hotter than the norm for the season.

Forecasters issued a warning about potential poor visibility along the coast, in central Israel and in the north-western Negev. Visibility is expected to clear up by noon.

Temperatures are expected to drop significantly on Saturday, but the weather will still be unusually hot for the season, as it was the week before.

The weather will grow cooler again early next week, forecasters say. Temperatures will go back to being within the average range for the season.
