Jerusalem's first snow since 2008 coming?

.
The helicopter landing at Hadassah hospital helipad had clear visibility just last Monday.
But that was the last we saw of blue skies this week.
The good news is that Jerusalem might have SNOW on Saturday!

The weather forecasters say snow may fall on peaks higher than 700 meters.
Too bad the hill of my village is a bit lower than that.

Jerusalem Municipality has fifty salt spreaders and bulldozers at the ready.
Buses do not work on Shabbat and religious Jews do not drive their cars; not much traffic.
So Saturday snow sounds perfect!
.
Happy SkyWatch Friday wherever you are.

Dear Dina, hope you'll get some Saturday snow - and hope you're feeling much better (I just saw your post from earlier this month)! Shabbat Shalom :)

Weather forecasters are very funny people and once in a while are even right...

Snow in Israel is beautiful, but hazardous if you are trying to get from Jerusalem to the airport, as I found out in the early hours of Jan 31st 2008. It was a complete nightmare. The Nesher taxi driver swore all the way round the city because the roads were so hazardous. It took us nearly 3 hours to get to Ben Gurion, and i made check in just in time!

Looks like you'll be having colder weather then. How cold does it get in Jerusalem?
