The weather is expected to take a turn for the worse starting today, as cloudiness will gradually increase leading to rain and thunderstorms across Greece, but especially  in the north of the country.

A few clouds will hover during the morning over the rest of the country with a chance of light showers in the eastern Aegean.

Visibility will be limited in the mainland during the morning hours.

Conditions favor the transport of African dust.

Winds will blow south at 3 to 5 Beaufort, locally reaching 6 in the Ionian, and will intensify as night falls.

Despite the deterioration in weather, temperatures will remain high for the season with daily highs of 19 to 20 degrees Celsius in the west and north and between 20 to 21 degrees in the rest of Greece.

On Sunday, the entire country will be cloudy while by noon rain and thunderstorms will have spread, phenomena which will only intensify come Sunday evening.
