Looks like Zakynthos bore the brunt of it this time:

Tornado sweeps through Zakynthos

The Ionian island of Zakynthos was struck by a tornado Tuesday morning, the fourth in a few weeks, uprooting trees, destroying rooftops and causing power cuts.

According to local reports, the tornado swept mainly through the areas of Lagana, Tsilivi and Vanatou shortly after 8 a.m.

No injuries have, so far, been reported.

Rain likely on Kef tomorrow morning, followed by mostly good weather for the next ten days or so...

Think the thunderstorms may have passed (for now) but very heavy rainfall possible tonight and tomorrow.

With thunderstorms around it may not be a bad time to buy a (good) surge protector for your PC, one with protection for your phone line, etc, as well. May not protect you from a direct lightning strike but better to have some protection than none. Various makes/models available, a little research probably in order - bear in mind even a 'good' one will probably need to be replaced every few years.

Weather to worsen with snow forecast for much of country

Following days of heavy rain in Attica and elsewhere, snowfall is expected in several parts of the country from Monday night, according to the National Meteorological Service (EMY).

Snow is forecast for mountainous parts in the country's north and western Macedonia, EMY said.

The temperature in those areas is expected to drop by between 8 and 10 degrees Celsius.

The cold snap is expected to spread to other areas, including mountainous parts of Attica late on Tuesday or early Wednesday.

Elsewhere in the country -- the Ionian... -- there will be rain and storms while winds will reach gale force of between 8 and 9 on the Beaufort scale.

Temperatures in Greece Expected to Rise Over 40 Degrees Celsius Starting Sunday

Another heat wave is expected to hit Greece starting this Friday, when temperatures will begin to rise into the high 30’s.

At the height of the heat wave, temperatures are expected to reach as high as 40 to 41 degrees Celsius.

Although the temperatures will soar in the coming week, meteorologists say that the heat will not be as scorching as the previous week where temperatures rose into the mid-40’s.

Weather service warns of downpours and hailstorms

A sticky heatwave that has gripped Greece since the start of the week will give way to thunderstorms and hail starting on Saturday night in northern parts, the national weather service, HNMS, warned on Friday.

Macedonia, Epirus, the western mainland, the islands of the Ionian... should brace on Sunday for gale-force winds and storms. Hail is also in the cards, the HNMS said.

The wet front will start spreading east on Sunday night so that by Monday most parts of the country will see a dramatic shift in conditions.

Civil protection authorities on Thursday ordered all schools to remain closed on Friday the Ionian islands of Zakynthos, Cephalonia and Ithaca, as well as in the town of Larissa, after meteorologists warned of more torrential rains and storms to come.

The decision comes a day after a weather system called Eurydice caused flash floods in western Attica that claimed at least 15 lives and caused widespread destruction.

Meteorologists are concerned that Eurydice may not have done its worst yet, as it is forecast to remain in the country through the weekend and may coincide with a Mediterranean hurricane called Xenon that appears to be on its way to Greece.

Throughout the country on Thursday, in the Greek capital, as well as the northern cities of Thessaloniki and Naoussa, as well as Ioannina and the island of Cephalonia in the west, heavy rains and strong winds turned streets into rivers and caused traffic disruptions and flooding. The fire service said that it received more than 100 telephone calls to pump out waters from flooded homes and businesses in northern Greece.

Firefighters also rescued a young man who had been stranded in his car during the storm on Cephalonia island.
