Kinneret Up Another Centimeter

The water level of Lake Kinneret (the Sea of Galilee) rose a centimeter/.4 inches in the last 24 hours and stood at 212.88 meters below sea level. That's 12 centimeters/4.72 inches above the lower red line, and 4.08 meters/13.4 feet below the level at which the lake would have to be drained a bit to avoid flooding.

There has been a steady flow of runoff from previous precipitation, and a new storm is expected on Thursday.
