Pretty white snow turns Greece into a Winter Wonderland (PICS)


Regions around Greece experienced heavy snowfall overnight turning the country into a pretty winter wonderland!


Even at relatively low-lying areas, snow fell due to the phenomena caused by a low barometric pressure system named “Sophia.”


It snowed all throughout the prefectures of Macedonia, Ioannina, Trikala and Larissa and snow chains were required on several roads.


“Sophia” will continue to bring very low temperatures, as a mass of cold air from the north sweeps through the country. Temperatures will drop several degrees below zero Celsius on Friday and Saturday, especially in central and northern Greece.


Rain and storms are also forecast in central and southern Greece, the Ionian and Aegean Seas and all their coastal areas.


For those driving travel with care, and for those flying check with your airline as several flights have been cancelled to and from Thessaloniki.
