« on: Thursday, 06 October, 2016 @ 17:50:43 »
Just looking ahead and thunderstorms on Kef probable on/around Friday. Temperatures look pretty good though for foreseeable future.


Still looking like thunderstorms tomorrow, followed by pleasant weekend weather and more thunderstorms Monday, possibly going into Tuesday.

Looks like Zakynthos bore the brunt of it this time:

Quote
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.

Yes, the wind caused cancellation of some ferry services and apparently the Oki Day parade was cancelled in Argostoli due to the weather.

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.
