Kinneret Rises by 2 Centimeters

The Kinneret (Sea of Galilee) rose by 2 centimeters in the past day, bringing it to 3.16 meters below the red line at which a dam is opened to prevent flooding.
The lake, Israel's largest single source of fresh water, is expected to hit a 20-year high in the upcoming months thanks to bountiful winter rains.
