Some roads in the south were blocked by flooding on Saturday as a storm brought heavy rainfall to many parts of the country as well as more snow to the Hermon.
Route 90, a north-south artery, was closed in both directions between the Dead Sea hotel area to Ein Gedi due to flooding from streams in the area.
In addition, Route 232 was blocked in both directions by the Habesor suspension bridge.
Police advised motorists to find alternative routes.
The Mount Hermon ski resort in the Golan Heights announced it will stay closed on Saturday due to the weather conditions. The site said it would update the public on when it expects to reopen.
The rain is expected to gradually weaken in the coming days, with weather set to be dry and warmer by mid-week. However, rain is set to return next weekend.

Last month, Storm Elpis battered the country, delighting residents of Jerusalem with a rare snowfall, as well as dumping snow on the Golan Heights. Israel’s central hilly region, including Jerusalem, gets snowfall once every few years, though forecasts for snow often don’t pan out.
