Here comes the rain

Hopefully, Israel is in for a very rainy winter after years of drought.

We're off to a good start so far -- this past October brought the most recorded rain EVER in the history of Israel since rainfalls have been recorded.

Today's storm system is supposed to dump quite alot, and will only taper off tomorrow (Tuesday) evening. There's even a possibility of snowfall in the Northern Golan atop the Hermon mountain range.

See the best weather link for Israel, with the Muqata's endorsement: IMS, Israel's Meteorological Service.

Another very good Israeli weather website is "Weather it is Israel":
http://www.weather-it-is-israel.com/
Go check it out. It gives detailed forecasts for loads of locations around Israel, especially Yesha ;-)

When making decisions about water conservation, the government generally looks at periods of 10 years at a time. If the last winter of a year is wet, it allows them to say that the trend is towards wet winters so there is no need to take special water conservation measures. This happened after 1989-90 and 1999-2000 which were both unusually wet winters. So this year, just this year, we should really want there to be less rainfall than normal.

"last winter of a year"
I meant "of a decade"

Shlomo: Unfortunately, we need lots of rain, and the government to seriously allocate funding for water desalination (or...to stop giving water to Jordan) The amount of water we give Jordan is the primary reason the Kinneret is so low now.
