Snow on the way as temperatures set to fall

Weather conditions are set to deteriorate this week with the National Meteorological Service (EMY) forecasting strong winds, snowfall and storms, across much of the country.

Temperatures are set to plunge by up to 10 degrees Celsius early in the week with the cold snap expected to continue at least through Tuesday.

Conditions are to ease from Wednesday though parts of central and northern Greece will remain icy. With strong winds likely to affect ferry departures from the country’s main ports, as was the case at the end of last week, those planning to travel by sea are advised to check ahead of time with tour operators.
