Heavy rain forecast


Strong downpours and plummeting temperatures, especially in northern Greece, are forecast by the national weather service (HNMS) for the next few days.

The wet front is expected to start rolling in late Friday, bringing showers and storms to the islands of the Ionian, Epirus, the western and central mainland and the western Peloponnese, before spreading east to other parts of the mainland through today.

Wet weather will also hit the islands in the eastern Aegean while strong winds are expected to batter the western Aegean, reaching gale force at sea.
