Greece woke up to the first snow of the autumn-winter season of 2014. It fell in the central region of Epirus, in areas with an altitude of above 1,450 m, and covered in white attire the villages of Mitsikeli, Vassilitsa and Aetomilitsa, and Anilios ski centre. The temperature dropped below 0° C in this region, and the weather in both Epirus and Ioannina is cold. The regional civil protection service is fully prepared to deal with potential problems caused by bad weather.

     Stormy winds caused problems in maritime transport. According to information from the Coast Guard, the maritime connections between Piraeus and Salamina and Elefsina and Faneromenis Salamina are not operating whereas the other routes in the Argosaronic Sea are functioning. The strong wind in the port of Lavrio near Athens was the cause for a yacht and a fishing boat to collide but there were no people onboard the two vessels.
     Meteorologists are warning of rain, thunderstorms and strong winds over the territory of Greece all Friday. Bad weather will recede to the northeast on Saturday afternoon, and in some areas of the Aegean Sea the wind will probably reach 9 on the Beaufort scale.
