Just a day after beginning our prayers for rain, our community saw it's first rains of brachah this morning.
After a long, hot summer, rain is set to arrive in Israel on Wednesday, after Jews throughout Israel prayed for a wet winter on Monday.
Temperatures are set to fall significantly over the next day, and a storm should bring the first rains to Israel by late Tuesday.
Rain will intensify late Tuesday and continue throughout Wednesday before tapering off Wednesday night, forecasters said, with rain reaching almost all parts of the country. (Source)
