While rising water levels is monumental, Israel turns to desalination as its source for drinking water, and the lake’s water quality has taken the forefront of environmental concerns.
The rise in water levels comes after a heavy winter storm impacted much of the country over the past two days.
It is still unclear exactly how strong the snowfall will be in Jerusalem.
Meteorologists stressed that it's still too early for any certainty, as the different models are still unclear and very fragile.
Further rainfall and snowfall is expected on Tuesday and Wednesday.
On Sunday night, about two centimeters of snow fell on Mount Hermon.
Due to the high levels of rain the past several years, in addition to this winter's rain, the Kinneret water level is 3.055 meters above the lower red line level.
The lake is now 1.11 meters below the upper red line threshold, which marks 208.8 meters below sea level.
The police announced that it blocked several sections of Route 90 during Wednesday, as parts of the road were completely flooded.
Populating the Kinneret with mullets usually takes place once a year. It's done in order to preserve the lake's quality of water by maintaining a balanced population of algae.
