Satraphilias for Weather: This is the first extreme heat wave

Alpha’s meteorologist, Giorgos Satrafilias, spoke of a “severe heat wave” and leaves open the possibility of 40s!

According to Giorgos Tsatraphyllias: “This is the first extreme heat wave, which will last at least the first week of June. Temperatures will exceed 35-36 degrees in many areas. The bet for next week is how close or far the mercury will be from 40 degrees or if it will exceed it!”

Thessaly, Central Macedonia, Boeotia, Phithiodita, Idolokernania, Peloponnese, Crete and Dodecanese will experience high temperatures.

For Attica, it cannot be ruled out that the temperature will reach in the afternoon:

  • Saturday 1/6: 31 degrees

To Thessaloniki:

  • Saturday 1/6: 31 degrees
  • Sunday 2/6: 33 degrees
  • Monday 3/6: 36 degrees

“If the latest forecast is true, we will be visited by warm air masses from Sunday, June 2, which will raise the mercury above its average value,” he pointed out.

A note by Theodoris Kolitas about the weather for the next few days

The heat wave is expected to start on Sunday and will affect many parts of the country, according to EMY director and meteorologist Thodoris Kolitas.

According to his post, temperatures are expected to rise gradually from Sunday and the heatwave is expected to last until Wednesday.

Mr. According to Kolitas, the mercury on Monday is expected to be 34 to 35 degrees Celsius from Thessaly on the mainland and 36 degrees Celsius further south and inland.

“While there are still some differences between the forecast data, we also have several points where their views converge.

  • So let’s talk about a gradual rise in temperature from Sunday onwards, with the wind system generally weakening. Sea breezes are beneficial in coastal areas.
  • The heat will last until next Wednesday. Temperature ranges will be detailed until next Monday when the atmospheric forecast is good. Tuesday and Wednesday will be reassessed on the following days.
  • Comparisons of temperatures at 850hPa are presented in the table, followed by a video showing the evolution based on the ECMWF and GFS model.

Arnadoglo: Hot couple of days

Sakis Arnautoglo warned about the heat wave in his post yesterday.

As shown in the map on Facebook, the meteorologist estimated that temperatures will start to rise from Friday, with an average temperature of 31 degrees, Saturday 33, Sunday 35, Monday and Tuesday – the hottest days – averaged 36 degrees and Wednesday 35 degrees.

Accordingly, the temperature is 3 to 6 degrees lower in mountainous areas (eg 500-1,000 meters altitude), while coastal areas and islands are 3-5 degrees lower, but relatively higher.
