Cold Front “Leandros” to Sweep Across Greece from Thursday to Monday

January 13, 2021

ATHENS — A cold front with very low temperatures will start affecting Greece from Wednesday evening, according to the latest forecast of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) weather service meteo.gr. This cold snap, named Leandros, will bring snow over a large part of the mainland and is forecast to end on Monday, January 18.

The temperatures may drop to below 0 degrees Celsius during the night, even in low-lying areas, while areas at a higher altitude in central and northern Greece will see a full freeze between Saturday and Monday.

Leandros will bring snowfall even in the lowlands of Macedonia, Thrace and Thessaly but also in mountainous and semi-mountainous region throughout Greece from Thursday evening. Even though there will be intervals of better weather between snowfall, the extreme cold, especially during the night, is expected to create a lot of problems.


ATHENS – After vowing to keep out refugees and migrants – and denying reports of pushing them back – Greece's New Democracy government is going to extend a fence along the northern border with Turkey by the Evros River.
