The ban on sailing from Zakynthos and Kefalonia is extended due to strong winds

Zakynthos and Kefalonia remain without ferry routes, due to the stormy winds that blow in the Ionian, from the first mornings of Thursday.

The two islands are excluded from the rest of Greece, from 06:00 on Thursday morning while the curfew is valid until 06:00 on Friday morning, where a new update is expected.

The winds that blow in the area reach 7-8 Beaufort, a fact that keeps the ships moored in the ports.

“Medicane” Cyclone to Hit Greece Over the Weekend

Meteorologists in Greece and Italy are predicting a Mediterranean cyclone to hit both countries this weekend. Some have already called it a “Medicane,” a word that comes by combining the words Mediterranean and hurricane.

According to Greek meteorologist Klearchos Marousakis, heavy rain and severe thunderstorms are expected in Greece over this weekend.

The areas that will receive the highest amounts of rainfall are the southern Ionian islands...

Meteorologists point out, however, that the exact course of a Medicane cyclone is very difficult to predict. Its formation mechanics in a relatively small area, disproportionate to the area’s predictive models, make the Medicane quite unpredictable.

Additionally, the weather patterns in the Mediterranean sea can change very quickly, both in time and in space.

Forecast for Kef currently looking fairly stable but there's time for that to change.
