With temperatures dropping rapidly throughout Greece, the first snow of the season appeared on Parnitha mountain, north of the Greek capital.

Footage from video cameras installed by the Bafi Refuge, at altitudes of 1,161 and 1,350 metres, and looking out over southeastern Attica, showed snowfall dressing the mountain’s peaks in white on Monday.

According to weather forecasts, a cold front sweeping in from the north will push down temperatures in the center of the Greek capital to a nighttime low of 7 degrees Celsius, while winds will be quite strong at 5 to 7 on the Beaufort Scale.

The colder weather is adding more urgency to the efforts to repair thousands of homes that were damaged in last week’s flash floods in Mandra and Nea Peramos; which also claimed at least 21 lives.
