Rain and thunderstorms through Friday


After several weeks of sunny conditions, the weather is expected to spoil from Tuesday, with the National Observatory of Athens’ online Meteo weather service forecasting rain and thunderstorms in many parts until Friday.

The wet front will affect much of the mainland and the islands, particularly in the afternoons while temperatures are also expected to drop, particularly in northern parts where lows will drop to 6 degrees Celsius.

Hailstorms and strong winds are also expected in some parts, particularly in the north.
