wishes of the Mayor Nir Barkat – it did hit much of the North.
northern Golan Heights received 20-25 centimeters of snow, according to the
Israel Meteorological Service. In the Galilee, as well as some mountainous
portions of the country’s center such as Hebron and Gush Etzion, several
centimeters of snow also fell, the IMS reported. About 14-18 cm. of water
drenched the Golan and the northern Galilee.

Safed Municipality website said that school in the city and surrounding Upper
Galilee region was in session as normal on Sunday.
