Continuous and unabated precipitation in the last 24 hours has resulted in a significant rise of over 15 centimeters in the Sea of Galilee's water level. This surge brings the national lake's level to 210.65 meters, standing 1.85 meters below the upper red line.

Furthermore, the Jordan River has crossed the critical flow threshold of 100 cubic meters per second, registering a flow of 115 cubic meters per second at the water authority's hydrological station at the P'kak Bridge. This marks a peak flow in the Jordan River during the current rainy season.

The forecast indicates intermittent rain, primarily in northern Israel and the coastal plain, accompanied by isolated thunderstorms. Local rain is expected in central Israel, with the possibility of snow on the higher peaks of the northern mountains. There is still a slight concern about local flooding along the coastal plain. The temperatures will remain colder than usual for this season.

Weather Forecast for the Coming Days:

Wednesday: Partially cloudy with intermittent rain, mainly in northern Israel and the coastal plain. Isolated thunderstorms are expected, and there may be local snow on the higher peaks of the northern mountains. A slight risk of localized flooding along the coastal plain. Colder than usual temperatures.

Thursday: Partly to mostly cloudy. Intermittent rain, occasionally accompanied by isolated thunderstorms, mainly in the coastal plain. Rainfall may strengthen in northern Israel during the afternoon and evening. Localized rain is possible in southern Israel. Colder than usual temperatures.

Friday: intermittent rain showers are expected in northern and central Israel, accompanied by occasional isolated thunderstorms. From the afternoon onwards, local rainfall is anticipated in southern Israel, with a slight concern for flash floods in the southern and eastern streams. A slight increase in temperatures is forecasted, but it will still be colder than usual for this season.

Saturday: rain showers will persist in northern and central Israel, with occasional isolated thunderstorms still possible. It will remain colder than usual for this season.
