High temperatures in Greece over the weekend

Temperatures in Greece will be high over the weekend as the atmospheric instability gradually subsides, the weather service of the National Observatory of Athens, meteo.gr, said on Friday.

From Friday afternoon but mostly over the weekend very hot air masses are expected to spread from Africa to Europe.

On Saturday, temperatures are forecast to reach a high of 36-37C in the plains of Thessaly, while on Sunday they will rise further, reaching 39C in Thessaly.

The high temperatures are expected to start declining from Monday, starting from the north, whereas the countries of Western Europe will continue to experience a heatwave.

Northerly winds to ease heat from Tuesday

After a three-day scorcher that has seen temperatures in many parts of Greece reach the 40-Celsius mark, meteorologists are confident that the mercury will return to a more seasonal range on Tuesday, mainly as a result of an uptick in the etesian winds that sweep through Greece every summer.

After western Europe, Greece bracing for mini-heat wave

Hopes that a heat wave which baked parts of western and northern Europe last week would slip by Greece were dashed on Monday by the country's National Observatory, which warned of a blast of high temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday.

For Athens, Meteo has forecast daytime highs of 35-38 degrees Celsius between Wednesday and Friday, with the worst of the heat seen in central parts of the mainland and the northern-northeastern Aegean, where temperatures will reach 41 Celsius at times.

Might get a tad warmer on Kef but low thirties looks likely.

Greece's world-famous archeological site atop the Acropolis Hill will close on midday on Thursday and Friday due to the heatwave gripping the country, the city’s Ephorate of Antiquities said Thursday.

The site will remain closed from 1-5 p.m. on both days, if the temperature exceeds 36 degrees Celsius, which in the city centre feels like 40 degrees, according to the announcement.
