Wet weather to ease heat in northern Greece as of Thursday


The sunny weather in northern Greece will give way to heavy rain, thunderstorms and gale-force winds as of Thursday.

The national weather service said that heavy clouds will roll into western and central Macedonia and Thessaly around noon, bringing rain, storms and strong winds, which will sweep across eastern Macedonia later in the day, when the islands of the northeastern Aegean can also expect sporadic showers.

Skies are set to clear again on Saturday.
