This is an overall forecast, due to the mountainous terrain the weather can be very localised.                
Updated forecast @
weather.com               
               
Today's bank rate:                
1 GBP = €   1.1435            
1 USD = €   0.8397            
               
Based on Alpha Bank exchange rates, these are widely used by exchange agencies in Greece.                
Other banks likely to offer a different rate which may be marginally higher or lower.                
Banks and foreign exchange offices normally charge standard 2% commission.               
You may get a better rate changing your holiday money in advance at e.g the
Post Office.               
NB: some f-ex agencies advertise "No Commission".                
Invariably, they deduct commission before they (don't) advertise the rate.               
Foreign exchange offices are businesses, not charities.

Flooding in Lixouri, the river bed running through the centre of town, normally a dry concrete channel, is a raging torrent. The Argostoli-Lixouri road is temporarily closed.
