Weather and Climate 

In the winter, the temperature is around 18 to 21 degrees, the coldest months are January and February (low season). Best time to visit the city is September and October as the weather is absolutely great.

The hot season lasts for 4.0 months, from May 24 to September 23, with an average daily high temperature above 36°C The hottest month of the year  is July, with an average high of 39°C and low of 26°C.

Summers

Summers are long, lasting from May to September, with July and August being the hottest months. Temperatures range between 23-36° C (75-96° F) and you can expect 50-90% humidity.  The good news is that there is air-conditioning almost everywhere you go, from buses and taxis to malls and hotels. However, it is really important to prepare for these temperatures, especially when spending time outdoors. Buy good sun protection, wear long but cool clothes and make sure to drink plenty of water.

Autumn

Autumn is, for the most part, a continuation of the summer weather. It does get a little cooler and the humidity drops, so it is more comfortable.  The season starts in September and at the end of November it starts getting cooler and we might see a little rain, but not too much.  September is usually as warm as summer, but the temperatures in autumn are similar to those of spring and range between 16-24° C (60-75° F).

Winter

Depending where you come from you might not even consider the city weather “real winter weather”.  This is the wettest time of the year and temperatures range between 6-15° C (42-60° F). Israeli schools have a winter break for Channukah during December, this usually doesn’t affect accommodation but activities tend to get crowded. Also, tourists from nearby countries use their winter breaks to enjoy the warmer temperatures in this city.

Spring

Spring is between March and May and this is the ideal time to visit this city. You usually won’t see much rain and the temperatures are mild, ranging between 16-24° C (60-75° F), although the nights might still be chilly. Passover falls in April so if you are planning on visiting during this time keep in mind that prices of flights and accommodation will rise and tend to get booked early.

When is the best time to book my flight ?

There are many different factors that effect each route and so the bad news is – no one rule fits all. But, the good news is that Hopper, a Boston-based start up that analyses flight data and predicts the best time to book a specific flight is doing a great job (they are right 95% of the time), so we suggest checking out their predictions for your flight and welcome to eilat airport .

What is the cheapest time to fly ?

the high season is from June to August, so those will obviously be the most expensive months to fly . Now, the cheapest month may fluctuate, and the reason for that is that Jewish holidays do not always fall in the same month, for example, one year Passover may fall in March and the next it will be in April.  

Safety 

The location is considered to be reasonably safe according to the best statistics, but there are some additional cautions. For Israel, the West Bank, and the Gaza Strip as of October 7, 2019, there are travel recommendations and cautions; use extreme caution and avoid particular regions.
