Tel Aviv weather

Traveling to Tel Aviv can be an amazing experience if you have planned it well, especially where the weather is concerned. Your reason for traveling to Tel Aviv will determine what time of the year, and what type of weather, will be best for you.

December to February is winter time in Israel and the temperatures are fairly low. In general January is the coldest month with an average temperature of 12.5°C (55°F). This time is also Israel’s rainy season and overcast, drizzly days can be expected. January is also the wettest month with an average rainfall of 110mm so you should definitely remember an umbrella. As Tel Aviv is a seaside city, humidity is to be expected all through the year but February is generally the most humid. In the cooler winter weather a stroll along the beach is more common than spending hours sunbathing and swimming but hotels in Tel Aviv near the beach will offer spectacular views and amenities to make your stay all the more enjoyable.

Spring time (March to April) sees temperatures rising and rainfall averages dropping. It is a perfect time to enjoy the markets and restaurants Tel Aviv has to offer as the Mediterranean can still be a bit too cold for most to enjoy a swim. Spring is a beautiful time in Israel as flowers start to bloom and wildlife in the neighboring countryside come out of hibernation. It is also a great time to go hiking and bike riding. This is a calmer tourist time and the beaches are relatively quiet.

Between May and August tourism spikes as many people come for the summer months to enjoy the sea, sand and sun. Temperatures rise to the mid 20’s and 30’s (roughly 80-90°F) and there is basically no rain making it perfect beach weather. Humidity is still fairly high and having a hotel in Tel Aviv near the beach is perfect in these months. The beach and heat is close at hand but you can also get back into an air-conditioned hotel room fairly quickly. If you are a summer tourist be sure to pack you swim trunks, hat, sunscreen and lots of breathable, cotton clothes so you can cover up but still stay cool.

Autumn (September to November) is also a quieter tourism time as most people head home as temperatures start to go down. Many people traveling for the High Holy Days go straight to Jerusalem so while traffic might be more expensive and busier, finding a hotel in Tel Aviv will be a fair bit easier. Tourist can also look forward to seeing the beauty of millions of migrating birds in this period.

Regardless of the time of year you wish to visit Tel Aviv you can always expect some humidity but you can chose a colder or warmer, wetter or drier time depending on what it is want to do or experience. With numerous options for hotels near the beach you will always have splendid scenic views of the pristine Tel Aviv beaches and the Mediterranean.
