The first areas to be affected on Monday will be in Epirus and in central and eastern Macedonia and Thrace, while the front may reach the northernmost Ionian islands by nightfall, as well as the western mainland, Thessaly, the Sporades islands and the islands of the northern Aegean.

On Tuesday, the front will affect the areas of Halkidiki, eastern Macedonia and Thrace, the Sporades islands, Evia, the islands of the north and eastern Aegean and, from the afternoon and evening, possibly the eastern mainland and Thessaly.

By Wednesday afternoon, all mainland regions will be affected and the phenomena are forecast to continue on Thursday.
