Winter storm Vladimir began to wane Sunday, leaving in its wake heavy rainfall and high hopes for the ski season. Education Minister Elias Bou Saab has extended the winter breaks of public, private and vocational schools because of the storm. Monday's weather is expected to be cloudy with heavy showers at times and a gradual rise in temperatures. Snow will fall down to altitudes of 1,400 meters, according to the weather bulletin. The total level of precipitation this winter is still far lower than that experienced over the same period last year.Heavy rain and strong winds were also recorded along the southern coast. Shipping at the Sidon port remains suspended due to the storm. Some fishermen, however, have defied the storm and headed out in their boats. Farmers expressed hope that the rainfall brought by the storm would continue, especially given the relatively dry weather that the country has seen of late.
