The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has confirmed a number of weather events and reported the onset of a dry winter, with the Israeli meteorological service confirming that a “dry winter” began on December 9.
According to the IDF’s Weather Bureau, the dry winter started at 10:00 a.m.
GMT, which is 3 hours ahead of the expected winter start time of December 8.
In its report, the Weather Bureau added that this is the first time that the dry season has been recorded since a dry year began in 2013.
According the Weather Bureaus forecast model, a dry season begins at 10 hours before the start of winter and ends at 8:00 p.m., when the snow begins to melt.
This is because it takes longer for the snow to melt and thaw out.
During the dry years, the IDF has also reported snowfalls of up to three centimeters.
The IDF also reports snow and ice conditions throughout the winter months, with snowfalls reported at a rate of 0.6 centimeters a day and icefall rates of 1.5 centimeters per hour.
While the IDF reports dry conditions in the country, a number other countries have reported dry winters as well.
In France, a total of 10 months of the year have been dry, with winter snowfall rates reaching as low as 0.01 centimeters per day.
In the United Kingdom, the winter season is also called “winter of snow,” as it begins in December.
According with the Weather Office, the UK has recorded a dry period of 4.8 inches (10.6 cm) of snow in 2017, with a total snowfall of about 20.5 inches (70 cm).
