A new storm system dubbed “Ypatia” will affect Greece starting from Wednesday, bringing storms, more snowfall and very strong southerly winds, according to the meteo station of the National Observatory of Athens.

Snowfall is forecast for high-altitude areas in the central and northern parts of the country and even for low-lying areas in Thessalia, Macedonia and Thrace, while the rest of the country will experience rainfall.

Ypatia is expected to reach the northern and western parts on Wednesday morning and the rest of Greece by the afternoon.

Wind velocity will reach up to 9 on the Beaufort scale.

Rain is forecast for Attica from the afternoon onwards, while more snow is expected to fall on Mount Parnitha. Thessaloniki will experience snowfall from the first morning hours.
