A new cold weather front will affect Greece beginning on Tuesday evening and lasting until Wednesday evening, meteorologists said on Tuesday morning.

Temperatures in most parts of the country will drop on Wednesday and winds will become stronger, according to the Athens National Observatory’s meteo service.

The new cold front will bring showers and possibly rainstorms on Tuesday afternoon in the northern parts of the country, while on Wednesday the same weather will prevail in northern and eastern areas of the mainland and the Aegean Sea.

Temperatures will drop significantly in the mainland areas affected, by as much as 8 degrees Celsius in some areas, but only on Wednesday, as a new hike in temperatures is forecast for Thursday.

Northerly winds of up to 9 on the Beaufort scale will blow in the Aegean Sea on Wednesday, lasting until Thursday night, while northwesterly winds of up to 8 Beaufort will prevail in the Ionian Sea throughout Wednesday.

Finally, atmospheric conditions may also favor the depositing of fine sand from Africa, mostly in the western and southern parts of the country.
