Following a night of rainfall in the north, the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) rose by 1 cm., bringing it to 213.425 m. below sea level, according to the Israel Water Authority.

The levels are still 42.5 cm. below the lower red line and 4.6 meters below full capacity.

Despite a particularly rainy December, the lake's water levels have reached its lowest point for this time of year since January 2012, the Water Authority reported at the beginning of the month.
