  • [01] Winter onslaught over coming hours

    AMNA/ The weather in Greece will take a drastic turn for the worse as of Monday afternoon with a sharp drop in temperatures, snowfall and storm winds.

    Snow was falling as of dawn on Monday on Mt. Parnitha, requiring snow chains on the access roads, while snow was expected at night-time in the north of Attica prefecture, while slight chances of snowfall in the center of Athens on Tuesday.

    Northerly storm-force winds were blowing in most parts of the country, while the temperature was not expected to exceed 12C.

    In northern Greece, very low and sub-zero temperatures were recorded on Monday in several cities, with snow and sleet expected later in the day. Temperatures dropped to 5C in Thessaloniki, 1C in Serres, Veria and Kilkis, while the thermometer plunged to -7C in Nevrokopi, -2C in Drama, -5 in Florina, -3 in Ptolemais, -2 in Alexandroupolis and -1 in Soufli, with snow chains required in many road axes.

    Meanwhile, the Greek weather bureau EMY issued an inclement weather warning, predicting snow in the afternoon in Macedonia, Thrace, the island of the northern and eastern Mediterranean and eastern Thessaly, spreading throughout the night to eastern Sterea (including Attica), Evia and the Sporades island complex, the eastern Peloponnese, the Cyclades Islands and Crete.
