  1. Impressive late winter storm is expected to develop over Greece by Saturday! Temperatures are expected to fall by 12 degrees and heavy snow is expected in many areas, especially in Central and Northern Greece. I will be glued to the webcams as our weather here sucks big time.

      Actually parts of Iceland can easily hit temperatures in the mid to high 20s in the summer due to the Foehn effect. Especially the east fjords.

      I can confirm the windows are still broken and a crack cloud has now gathered over the platforms. They are threatening to give the entire station a major revamp, does that mean they are fixing the windows😜

      I put that on Twitter that if UK was situated further North near Iceland it would mean colder weather for the UK and the two replies I got said it would make no difference.

  4. I need to migrate somewhere with proper weather. Any suggestions?

      Moki, i was returning from Gran Canaria March 2006 and when the plane landed we were stuck inside for an hour because they were de-icing the stairs. It was an inconvenience but i was glad to return to a frozen Britain.

  10. Really pleased to see the precipitation type forecasts back on Euro 4. 🙂

      I will be paying more attention to your fog index next year

  11. Heavy snowfall today in northern Greece will add inches to the old cover. It is expected to turn to rain this afternoon as above freezing uppers temporarily move over the area. I think some snow cover should survive as it turns chillier again from tomorrow.

      Well the mood is up and your chances of snow are increasing, mine exponentially. Might not need the 40 minute journey to see Narnia.

      By the way, the latest euro 4 is an upgrade in terms of snowfall for northern Greece. A lot of moisture from the west will bump into the established cold air and give inches of snow especially in inland areas (like my hometown). I will be glued to the webcams tomorrow for sure.

      Another added benefit tomorrow is that I might wake up with a slight frost here in Manchester. lol

  12. The whole of northern Greece has a beautiful covering of snow. Still snowing in the northeast. My hometown saw its first significant snowfall in two years. Hard frosts will follow in the next few days with some places seeing minimums in double digits.

      It is totally cloudy here even now.

  14. I may actually manage to see a frost this week! It shows the sad state of our winters when an early January frost is noteworthy.

  16. My Andalusian nights out were so nice. The Spanish eat and drink socially, there was an air of classiness about. Nobody falling down drunk, nobody vomiting on the pavements or urinating in corners and not a single fight broke out!

  19. For a time, I was worried about the possibility of missing some wintry weather by going away in December but it looks the only thing i will miss will be drizzle and southwesterlies. Not a front loaded winter after all.

      he does get a hard time whilst others get a tap on the back for theirs which usually is not any more accurate
