In the middle of next week, the country is expected to significantly increase air temperature that will persist for at least three days, ”says iefimerida.gr Costas Laguvardos, research director at the National Observatory of Athens / meteo.gr.
When asked whether the heat will reach + 40 ° C, the expert replies that “yes, this is the most likely scenario. Especially for areas like the interior of Thessaly and the Peloponnese. In principle, it is too early to talk about it, but there is a lot of confidence that this weather change will occur and we will have the first big heatwave (καύσωνας) this summer. From Monday we will have more data, ”adds a meteorologist at the National Observatory of Athens.
