While snowstorms continue to hit several European countries, Israelis are enjoying a heatwave.

Dozens of beach-goers have taken to the sandy beaches in the coastal city of Tel Aviv, a chance to work on their tan with temperatures of 35 degrees Celsius.

It's unusual to have such high temperatures at this time. And the good news for those in this part of the world, local forecasts say the heatwave is set to continue throughout the week.
