cross the road in cen­tral Athens amid a down­pour yes­ter­day. Fol­low­ing sev­eral weeks of un­sea­son­ably mild weather, the tem­per­a­ture fell yes­ter­day, with rain­fall and storms spread­ing across the coun­try. Me­te­o­rol­o­gists fore­cast strong storms in cen­tral and south­ern parts of the coun­try, which were ex­pected to reach the cen­tral Aegean and Dode­canese is­lands by the end of the day. Over the week­end heavy rain in the north of the coun­try caused wide­spread dam­age, lead­ing to the death of a 55-year-old Bri­tish tourist whose car was swept away by flood­wa­ters.
