Weather: Strong southerly winds & temperatures around 20 degrees today – Storm “Dorothea” is coming tomorrow

The weather will deteriorate again from Thursday, according to the director of the National Meteorological Service (EMY), Thodoris Kolydas. As he mentions in his post, the barometric low forming today in the Central Mediterranean has been named Dorothea.

According to Thodoris Kolydas, the new storm will begin to affect the country from Thursday afternoon and mainly on Friday with rain, storms, and stormy southerly winds.

The storm, according to Klearchos Marousakis, will first hit western Greece, with a line of storms with great length.

On Friday, this wave will travel slightly further east and will affect the entire country.

The weather will start to improve over the weekend, initially from the west.

Greece: Adverse weather forecast across much of the country through at least May 10
Severe weather forecast across much of Greece through at least May 10. Disruptions to transport, business, and utilities possible.

Authorities will likely issue new alerts or update/rescind existing advisories as weather conditions change over the coming days.

Sustained heavy rainfall could trigger flooding in low-lying communities near rivers, streams, and creeks. Urban flooding is also possible in developed areas with easily overwhelmed stormwater drainage systems. Sites downstream from large reservoirs or rivers may be subject to flash flooding after relatively short periods of intense rainfall. Landslides are possible in hilly or mountainous areas, especially where heavy rain has saturated the soil.

Authorities could issue mandatory evacuation orders for flood-prone communities over the coming days.
