Winter in full swing as country gets snow, sleet and rain

For the second consecutive day, the Israel Electric Corporation reported record-breaking winter electricity consumption, reaching 12,624 megawatts in the evening as temperatures dipped to below-freezing levels in some places around the country.

Schools remained open in most communities in Israel, but the Knesset canceled all of day’s meetings in light of the inclement weather predictions.

As a precautionary measure in anticipation of more storms, police temporarily closed off Highway 443 in both directions from Shilet Junction to Mahane Ofer, as well as Highway 45 from Atarot Junction in the direction heading to Jerusalem and the highway leading from Ma’aleh Hahamisha to Kiryat Anavim.
