Alarming Weather Statistics

(IsraelWire-12/2-16:05-IST) According to Channel 2 TV meteorologist Danny Rupp, this year’s autumn (September, October, and November) has been the hottest and driest since 1946. In addition, of the seven hottest autumn seasons in the past 52 years, during the winter of 1956-57 yielded a rainy season which exceeded the normal annual rainfall.

Last week, the chief rabbis have instructed everyone to include special prayers for rain in the daily prayer services as the level of the Kinneret, the nation’s water carrier continues to fall.

According to Channel 2, there is no rain in the forecast for the next four days.
