The rain over the weekend raised the level of the Kinneret by one centimeter, the Water Authority said on Sunday.  

The rain was concentrated most in the north with around 30-40 millimeters falling in some areas of the Galilee and the Golan.

In the center of the country around 20-30 millimeters fell. 

The rain over the weekend did not result in the strengthening of the country's streams, but the Water Authority expects this to happen if the rainy conditions return later in the week.
