Severe weather warning in Greece: Snow, rainfall and winds from Tuesday nightExtreme weather phenomena are a relatively rare winter occurrence in Greece, which is famous in the whole world for its great climate all year round

The Hellenic National Meteorological Service (HNMS) issued a severe weather warning bulletin for late Tuesday night, with heavy rains and thunderstorms, snow and stormy winds, protothema.gr reports.

The extreme weather conditions will begin in the northwest with the key features including snow and heavy winds.

From early Wednesday the mountainous and semi-mountainous areas of northern Greece and the mountains of Thessaly and central Sterea will see snowfall. From midday, the snow will gradually spread to all mountainous and semi-mountainous regions of the central country, along with lowland areas to the north. Snowfall will be dense in some areas, mainly in the north.

On Thursday, there will be occasional snow in the abovementioned areas, while it is also forecast to affect the lowlands of Thessaly, as well as areas of lower altitude (between 200-400 metres and possibly transient in the afternoon) in central, eastern Sterea and Euboea.

Strong rainfalls and thunderstorms, with local hailstorms, will affect the regions of the Ionian Sea, Epirus and western Sterea. From the afternoon, the phenomena will gradually move into the Peloponnese, the islands of the north and east Aegean and the Dodecanese and late in the evening the Cyclades and Crete.

 Very strong winds will blow on Wednesday, initially from a west-southwesterly direction, gradually turning to north-northwesterly directions and reaching up to 8 on the Beaufort scale, climbing to 9 Beaufort in the Ionian Sea.

On Thursday, northern winds up to 7-8 Beaufort will prevail across Greece.
