New cold snap set to arrive on Thursday
A child dashes along a snowy slope at the Mainalo ski center, some 30 kilometers from Tripoli, in the central Peloponnese, yesterday. The ski center sits near the peak of Mount Mainalo at an altitude of 1,600 meters. After a brief improvement in weather conditions across the country over the past few days, temperatures are forecast to drop again from midweek, with snow set to fall in mountainous parts of the mainland. Winds will strengthen across much of Greece, with storms expected to strike western and southern parts from Thursday onward.
