The stormy winter rain system is almost gone, but this morning saw encouraging statistics for precipitation nationwide, with an especially positive impact on the state of Israel’s National Lake, the beloved Kinneret. The storm which raged throughout Israel since last Thursday has added an almost inconceivable 20 centimeters (7.9 inches) to the lake’s water level.

The Water Authority’s Amir Givati told Channel 2 News that “from the beginning of this rain system we saw an increase of 30 centimeters (11.8 inches), which is a sharp and highly unusual spike. This greatly improved the situation at the Kinneret – which is now 80 centimeters (31.5 inches) above the “lower red line.” This after many long months of staying well below the same red line.

The weather report in Israel predicts blue skies and sunny days through the holiday of Purim.
