A warm October in Greece
This coming weekend, 21-22 October, is going to be a warm one in Greece and the neighboring countries.
A significant influx of warm air masses will be moving from Africa towards the Balkans and the South-East Mediterranean.
In countries close to Greece, midday temperatures in the next couple of days are expected to be 13-14 degrees higher than the average levels for this season.
Unusually high October temperatures in Greece
In Greece, temperatures are expected to fluctuate around 5-6 degrees higher than the usual levels. There will also be prevailing southerly winds, resulting in reduced visibility during the evening and early morning hours.
The atmospheric circulation, driven by various factors such as temperature gradients and pressure systems, will primarily facilitate the transportation of dust particles in the western and southern regions in Greece.
Still, the weather will be pleasant and summery, overall, and you can indulge in sightseeing, outdoor activities, or hitting the beach!
