ATHENS — The lowest temperatures early on Wednesday fell many degrees below zero Celsius both at higher altitudes but also in low-lying areas of northern Greece.

The lowest temperatures recorded by the automated weather stations of the Athens National Observatory's meteo service (excluding mountain refuges and ski resorts) were -6.7C in Neos Kafkasos, -6.6C in Nevrokopi, -5.5C in Paranesti, Drama and -4.8C in Mesovouno, Kozani.

Gale force winds were blowing in the Aegean, with gusts reaching up to 111km/h around the island of Tinos, 108 km/h in Karystos on the island of Evia, 108 km/h on Mt Parnitha and 85 km/h on Mt Penteli, both mountains in the region of Attica.


ATHENS - Just as residents and tourists in Greece have been walking away from worry about the Coronavirus pandemic that's lingering but fading, flu has emerged early on islands in the Cyclades, taken there by travelers from the Southerm Hemisphere.
