  • [01] Low temperatures and snowfall throughout Greece

  • [01] Low temperatures and snowfall throughout Greece

    Most of Greece was gripped by a cold front sweeping down from the north on Sunday, bringing ice and snow and below-zero temperatures in several areas throughout the country.

    Dozens of villages in Fthiotida were snow-bound on Saturday, with prefecture machinery unable to clear all roads of falling snow, while snow-chains were needed at higher altitudes in several parts of the country, especially in the north. The temperature in Evros perfecture, northeastern Greece, on Monday fell to -12C, and -6C in the city of Alexandroupolis. Due to the bitter cold the prefecture of Evros announced that schools will open an hour later, while the schools on the island of Samothrace will remain closed for the day.

    At 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, temperatures had sunk as low as -2C in Kastoria, -5C in Kozani, -9C in Florina and were reported to be as low as -11C at dawn in Vasilitsa.

    Around Attica, snowchains are needed by those heading up to the summit of Mount Parnitha after the cable car station, and on Tatoiou Avenue between the former royal estate and Katsimidi.

    Cloudy weather with light snowfall or sleet and northerly winds are forecast in most parts of the country on Monday, with wind velocity reaching 3-8 beaufort. Temperatures will range between -11C and 11C. Cloudy with light snowfall or sleet in Athens, with northerly 4-7 beaufort winds and temperatures ranging from 1C to 6C. Same in Thessaloniki, with temperatures ranging from -3C to 2C.
