In a new weather warning issued on Monday, Greece’s National Meteorological Service (HNMS) forecast the arrival of more rain and stormy weather from Tuesday afternoon, which may be accompanied by hail and strong winds as the storm system sweeps over the country from the west.
The weather system is initially expected to affect the Ionian Sea and Epirus, Western Macedonia and western parts of Greece, possibly even parts of Central Greece, reaching Thessaly and eastern Central Greece by nightfall on Tuesday and then the Sporades and Evia in the early hours of Wednesday.
The phenomena will start to subside on Wednesday in the northwest and will be restricted to Thessaly, the Sporades islands, Central Greece and possibly Evia by the afternoon, abating in the evening.
In Attica, the phenomena will be most intense on the night of Tuesday to Wednesday, chiefly in the north and western parts of the region.
