The “bell” for the new wave of bad weather that is expected to “burst” in our country towards the end of the week is rung by the well-known meteorologist Yiannis Kallianos, who warns of floods!
“I have to admit that I am worried about the weather next Saturday,” writes Yiannis Kallianos about the coming bad weather in his new post on Facebook, where he gives the three areas that are expected to be targeted.
“It will not rain everywhere with the same intensity. For example, Attica will be one of the regions that will receive less water compared to other regions of the country”, Mr. Kallianos emphasizes, among other things.
In more detail, Kallianou’s post is as follows:
“Good morning and good month!
I have to admit I am worried about the weather next Saturday. The instability indicators for this day are very high, which means that storms in places will be so strong that they will likely lead to flooding.
It will not rain everywhere with the same intensity. For example, Attica will be one of the regions that will receive less water than other regions of the country.
The most intense phenomena will occur mainly in the west, in the north and on the islands of the eastern Aegean, while it is expected to rain in most areas of Greece. Also the winds (southerlies) will reach 8 Beaufort in the seas (mainly in the Aegean). This bad weather will last 24 hours.
I am giving you the precipitation maps for Saturday (morning, noon, evening and Sunday morning) since it is clearly visible with the purple and red colors that the precipitation will be more intense.
The weather in Greece will start to gradually become more autumnal. A first weather change begins today with a few rains in the western and eastern Aegean.
According to the latest forecast models, a worsening of the weather is imminent in certain geographical compartments. Not that the temperature will drop dramatically with strong storms, but it will come to more… normal levels for the season, while enough water will also fall. The toughest day is expected to be Saturday, with thunderstorms across the country.
What’s the ‘P’ storm coming this weekend: Showers with a south-southwesterly flow – What forecasters say
Forecasters are warning of a sudden change in weather from Thursday (2/11), while the unsettled and rainy scene will extend to most of the country over the weekend. Bad weather “P”, as the meteorologists call it, will produce strong effects in a short period of time.
From Thursday we will see in the west, in the north and in the east of the Aegean a type of “P” weather – that is, if we observe it, it forms the letter P with rains in the west, towards northern Greece and towards the islands of the eastern Aegean, leaving essentially unaffected the inner part of the letter P which is mainly the central and eastern mainland.
The meteorologist, Giorgos Tsatrafillias in his post on his personal Facebook account presents an image that captures exactly what the bad weather “P” is that will concern us over the weekend.
The detailed prognosis
On Wednesday (1/11), light local rains are expected in western northwestern Greece and possibly in Thrace and the islands of the eastern Aegean. Winds will blow from western directions with an intensity of up to 6 Beaufort (south sea) and the temperature will not change significantly.
On Thursday (2/11), local showers and isolated thunderstorms will occur in western northwestern Greece, the northern northeastern country and the islands of the eastern northeastern Aegean. The winds will not exceed 6 Beaufort and the temperature will drop slightly.
Finally, there are serious indications that from the evening hours of Friday (3/11) in north-western Greece and on Saturday (/11) in almost the entire country, rains and local storms will occur. At the same time, southerly winds will prevail with an intensity of up to 8 Beaufort.
