It will be hot as hell in Greece today! The National Meteorological Service has issued an emergency bulletin, concerning the dangerously high temperatures, which are expected to reach 43 degrees at some places. The swelters started yesterday and will continue tomorrow, but the hottest day is expected to be today, Saturday 25.07. The average temperature for the country yesterday was 39-40 degrees. Today, winds are expected to subside and the lack of wind will render the heats unbearable. In central Greece, they will reach 41-43 degrees. The sea-breeze in the Aegean will keep the temperatures in areas around the sea rather moderate – with the highest expected to be around 36-38 degrees. On the islands, the highest temperatures will be recorded in the eastern Aegean and on Crete.

There is some good news however. Humidity is expected to be low at 30 per cent, making the swelters more bearable. Nevertheless, doctors are advising people not to leave their homes unless they have a serious reason to do so. Our diet is also very important for handling the heats and fatty foods should be avoided at all costs. The consumption of fruits and vegetables is advised, while drinking lots of fluids like juice and water and avoiding alcoholic beverages. Dermatologist warn against sun exposure between the hours: 12,00 and 16,00.

Starting Sunday, colder winds from the North-west will lower temperatures which should reach their normal seasonal values on Monday. Gradually, the inflow of hot air from Northern Africa is expected to weaken. The heats have already HIT Spain, Italy and the Czech Republic.
