    [02] Late frost recedes after shutting schools, roads

    The late cold snap that ushered in Greek spring was already receding by midday on Wednesday, after a blanket of snow and frost caused schools and some roads, particularly in north Athens suburbs, to close earlier the same morning.

    The sun was out and the snow already melting by the middle of the day, while temperatures are expected to rise above 20C by the end of the week.

    Early on Wednesday roads were closed at higher altitudes in Attica, such as on Parnithos Avenue above the cable car, on the old national highway from Elefsina to Thiva, on Fylis Avenue from the Kleiston Monastery to Dervenohoria, on Dionysos Avenue from Dionysos to Agios Petros and Ethnikis Antistaseos Avenue in Kaisariani from Kalopoula to Hymettos. Cars also needed snow chains on the Kapandriti-Kalamos road.

    There were also some problems in Athens due to ice on Protopapadaki road in Galatsi and Kymis Avenue in Kalogreza while all national highways were clear.

    Schools remained closed in several municipalities of Athens and Attica, as well as mountainous regions of Thessaly, Karditsa, Trikala and Magnesia, in Tripoli, Kalavryta and Aigialeia in the Peloponnese, in Evritania with the exception of Karpenissi, Fthiotida except in Lamia and Domokos. All kindergartens and primary schools were closed in Viotia, while schools in Florina and Kastoria opened after 9.00 a.m.

    Schools also remained closed in Lasithi on Crete, and on the islands of Skopelos, Alonissos and Skiathos due to power cuts.
