Rain, snow and strong winds expected from Wednesday

A new cold front is expected to hit Greece on Wednesday, bringing snow, gale-force northerly winds, storms and a significant drop in temperature, the National Meteorological Service (EMY) have forecasted.

The General Secretariat for Civil Protection (GSCP) have issued a warning for all pertinent state services and all regions and municipalities in the country to be prepared to deal with any problems the severe weather may cause.

Citizens are advised to be vigilant and take measures to protect themselves from weather-related dangers. This includes wearing several layers of thin clothing rather than one very warm thick layer, as well as weather-appropriate shoes, and to avoid venturing out when conditions are particularly difficult.

In areas that are expected to experience heavy rainfall, storms and strong winds, citizens are advised:

    to secure objects that could cause damage or injuries
    make sure that the gutters of their houses are not obstructed
    avoid crossing streams or torrents on foot or with their vehicles during and after a storm
    to avoid working in the open or engaging in seaside or waterside activities
    to take cover under a structure or inside a vehicle during a hail storm
    to avoid walking under large trees or signboards and where objects could fall on the ground
    to follow closely the instructions issued by authorities, such as the traffic police

Furthermore, in areas where snowfall and frost are predicted, people travelling with a car are advised:

    to consult the weather forecast and get information on road conditions before setting out
    to travel during the day and only if it is essential
    to always carry snow chains
    to change their travel plans to avoid extreme weather phenomena
    to inform their next of kin about the route they intend to take
