A cold front will cause this change of weather with locally strong thunderstorms from Thursday afternoon until Friday morning. Those who are engaged in marine activities (fishermen, swimmers, etc.) should be especially careful, as nothing will foretell this abrupt change of weather. This front will drop the temperature significantly and on the forecast maps on Friday night to Saturday the isotherm of 15 ° C appears to pass over Athens. Practically this means that our forecasts for Thursday are maintained as we have already set them in the emergency. bulletin, but the predicted temperatures of Friday and Saturday will be revised downwards according to the latest data “.
