After a hot weekend with temperatures reaching around 30 degrees Celsius, Greeks will experience a much bigger hot flash this week.

On Tuesday, the temperature approached 40 degrees Celsius in three places. In the town of Eleusis in Attica and in Thebes in Thessaly-Central Greece, 39.3 degrees Celsius was recorded. In the city of Psachna on the island of Euboea, it was 39.1 degrees Celsius. In many parts of the country, thermometers showed more than 35 lines above zero.

The heatwave, which the media described as “dramatic”, began to build on Monday. According to the national meteorological service EMY, similar temperatures are expected to subside in the second half of the week.

Residents and tourists were asked to hydrate frequently and avoid exposure to direct sunlight and during the hours when the temperature is highest.
