  • [01] Temperatures peak as Athenians quit capital for peak holiday season

    AMNA/ Athenians quit the Greek capital in droves over the weekend as yet another heatwave moved in to settle over the city and the peak holiday season in August started to draw near.

    Traffic in the ports of Piraeus and Rafina was heightened, though not so much as to cause problems to travellers. Scores of ferry boats departed from Piraeus over the weekend, carrying thousands of passengers and vehicles to the islands of the Aegean and Crete.

    Temperatures climbed steadily over the weekend to reach 39C on Sunday and will even reach up to 40C in some areas on Monday before starting to cool down on Tuesday evening. According to meteorologists, however, the heat will be less oppressive than previously due to the low humidity and a stiff northerly wind that will reach up to 7 Beaufort.
