After a weekend of wintry weather in the Golan Heights, Mount Hermon opened for skiing on Sunday, with 110 centimeters of snow at its highest peak and with 85 centimeters at a lower spot, according to date from the Hermon Ski Resort. Light snow continued through Sunday and there is a small chance for snow on Monday, the resort reported.

Meanwhile, after heavy rains on Friday, the Kinneret water level reached 213.44 meters below sea level on Sunday morning, a jump of 11 centimeters from Thursday, according to Water Authority data. The level is still 44 centimeters below the red line, however.

Despite the cold weather and large amount of recent precipitation, Israel Meteorological Services said that snow in Jerusalem this week was “possible but not very likely.”
