More than 100,000 Israelis visited nature sites across the country on Saturday to enjoy the sunny weather. The rain is expected to return on Sunday night.

Among the most populated sites were the Yarkon National Park in Tel Aviv, the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve and the Masada National Park. Special activities for families were held in many locations.

High winds on Sunday will bring haze to many parts of Israel. It will start raining in the evening, mostly in northern Israel, but the rain will spread to the center on Monday.
