ATHENS — High temperatures will continue to prevail in Greece for a fourth consecutive day on Friday, according to the weather service of the Athens National Observatory, meteo.gr.

According to the Greek National Meteorological Office temperatures will remain as high as 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). Face masks to curb the spread of the coronavirus are no longer mandatory in uncrowded public spaces as of Thursday.
