The water level of the Kinneret rose another 14 centimeters in the past 24 hours, and is now 211.20 meters below sea level. The water level has risen by more than 70 centimeters during the winter storm of the past six days.
The Kinneret's water level is now 1.80 meters below the lower red line and 2.40 meters below the upper red line. It has risen 124 centimeters so far this rainy season, and there is a good chance that the Degania Dam, which allows the lake to flow into the Jordan River to the Dead Sea, will be opened, when the water level in the lake reaches its optimal level.
The Kinneret's water level is at its highest level since 2007, and is expected to swell by tens of centimeters more over the next few days.
