As predicted, snow began to fall in Jerusalem on Wednesday evening, part of the “Elpis” storm, which began on Wednesday in Northern Israel.
Police closed Route 1 in both directions (Jerusalem to Tel Aviv) due to dangerous road conditions.
Some forecasts have said Jerusalem may get 8 inches of snow.
School has been cancelled for Thursday.
The snow is expected to stop early Thursday morning.
