Heavy snow is currently falling in the centre of Athens, creating beautiful sights in a city we usually associate with warm weather.
Syntagma Square is dressed in white, with the famous evzones still standing guard, despite whatever the weather might be.
At the same time, work crews of the Municipality of Athens are throwing salt in front of the Monument of the Unknown Soldier as the situation is expected to worsen in the coming hours, according to the forecasts of meteorologists.
In the meantime, in the north and west of the prefecture, it has been covered since the morning, while heavy snowfall is occurring at this time in the southern suburbs.
In fact, at 10:30 in the morning, the Civil Protection sent, through 112, a message to the residents of Attica, warning of heavy snowfall in the coming hours.
According to Greek meteorologists, today and tomorrow there will be very strong weather phenomena with unprecedented heavy snowfall in areas of the country where, usually, Greece does not have similar weather phenomena.
The Hellenic Police Headquarters advises citizens, who live in Attica and especially in the northern suburbs, where there is heavy snowfall, as well as in areas throughout the territory, where extreme weather phenomena occur, to avoid unnecessary movements.
In any case, it is reminded that information about traffic jams as well as useful tips for road safety, due to bad weather and severe weather, are available in a special banner on the website of the Greek Police.
The heavy snowfall in Spata covered the “Eleftherios Venizelos” airport in white too.
The snow has covered the runway of the airport as you will see in the video.
