    [02] Snow, low temperatures throughout Greece

    The first solid cold front of the winter season, after an extended period of unseasonally warm weather, arrived in Greece over the weekend, with temperatures near or below freezing and light snow reported in most of the country's mainland.

    The snow caused traffic congestion on roads in Attica (the greater Athens area), while roads on Mount Parnitha and Mount Penteli, which surround the Greek capital, were closed.

    Authorities also found a pair of hikers that had been missing since Sunday when they were cut off by the snow while walking in the countryside around Oinofyta, north of Athens.

    The snow also caused problems in the mountainous regions of Hania prefecture on Crete, cutting off roads and the power supply in the Selinos region.

    In western and central Macedonia of northern Greece, meanwhile, temperatures were just 1 degree Celsius within Thessaloniki and the city of Katerini, and -1 degree Celsius in Veria, while the lowest temperatures were in Florina, at -6 degrees Celsius, and Kastoria, with -7 degrees Celsius.
