With the weekend’s storm dying down, the ski resort site on Mount Hermon was opened on Sunday morning. Hundreds of Israelis came to the site to enjoy the piled-up snow.

The site said about 50-70 centimeters (20-30 inches) of snow fell during the winter system that hit Israel over the weekend. Snow is continuing to fall sporadically.

The weather will be partly cloudy during Sunday with possible showers from northern Israel to the Negev. Temperatures will gradually rise as the week goes on.
