The climate of Nablus (Palestinian Territories)
Nablus is located on the West Bank and is a medium-sized city. Nablus was founded by the Roman emperor Vespasian en was named Neapolis. During history Nablus was ruled by the Romans, Byzantines, Crusaders, Arabs, Turks, British and Israelis. Since 1995 it has been under the administrative authority of the Palestinian Territories. Nablus still has a beautiful old city center. The many conquerors have all left their marks, this can still be seen in the many small streets. Several beautiful ancient mosques can be found in the city as well as no less than six Turkish Hammams, some of which are several centuries old. The souk (Arab market) offers plenty of local products and beautiful handcrafted trinkets. The stamp ‘Made in Nablus’ counts as a recommendation in the Arab world. Besides the old and traditional products the city has a lively and modern center with modern shops and industries. One of the most important industries is the vegetable oil industry. The conflict between the Palestinian Territories and Israel also left its mark on Nablus. When Nablus was occupied for several weeks in 2002 by Israel many old buildings were destroyed. Nablus enjoys a Mediterranean climate with warm and dry summers followed by wet autumns and mild winters. It doesn’t get really cold both during fall and winter. During this period temperatures remain pleasantly mild to rapidly increase during spring. During the summer an ever blowing sea breeze offers some cooling.

The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
