Frozen temperatures, stormy winds and heavy snowfall have been recorded in Greece since 22 January as a result of a wave of bad weather front named ‘Elpis’ by the national meteorological service EMY.

A second, more severe system will follow on 24 & 25 January, as the phenomena will be made more intense by strong winds of up to 8-9 Beaufort in the Aegean and eastern Greece.
