Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, in northern Israel, just south of the Golan Heights.

Lake Kinneret – also known as the Sea of Galilee – is continuing to rise after the north has enjoyed a month of rain.

The lake is the country’s largest source of drinking water, and is one of the measures by which the nation determines whether the population will have a “normal” summer, or one with special water rationing regulations.


On Sunday the level of the lake measured at 213 meters and 35 centimeters below sea level – 35 centimeters below the lower red line, and 455 centimeters below the upper red line – the mark at which the lake is considered full.

There is no rain in the forecast until at least Wednesday night and into Thursday, in the north and along the coast.
