Dozens of centimeters of snow fell in Jerusalem and nationwide overnight Thursday and on Friday, in the second blizzard of the winter season and the first for 2015. 

One YouTube user captured stunning footage of the snowfall in the capital, showing the full extent of the polar vortex in real-time. 

Snow is expected to continue falling in areas of higher elevation in Israel through Friday, tapering off by Saturday afternoon. 

This is the second snowstorm in 2015, which has seen unusually low temperatures in the Middle East.
