Storm Barbara sticking around for another couple of days

The wintry weather front dubbed Barbara will continue over the next two days, bringing snow, sleet and rain to Magnesia, Fthiotida and Viotia in Central Greece, Attica, the island of Evia and the northeastern Peloponnese. 

The National Observatory of Athens has forecast snow in these areas. This will be heaviest in Magnesia and northern Evia, where the new snow will add to the already significant amounts on the ground. As parts of the Athens-Thessaloniki highway are also in the snow zone, caution is advised.

Snowfall is expected during the night in Attica, mainly in northern and northeastern areas, with a likelihood of up to 10 centimeters in lowland areas and 20-30 cm at higher altitudes. Snow or sleet may also fall in more southerly areas.

Barbara is expected to start losing her potency in Attica as of Thursday, but with snow and cold weather expected in the morning hours.
