This Summer’s Hottest Day: 42° C in Athens

Today is this summer’s hottest day: temperatures are expected to climb up to 42 degrees Celsius in Athens. In the shadow. However in the sun, in public buses without air-condition, near the bakery’s oven or close to the charcoal grill of a souvlaki grill the thermometer can climb much higher.

During the noon hours, temperature inside a public bus filled with passengers can reach even 45-46° C, I saw yesterday in a report broadcast by ALPHA TV. In front of a charcoal grill, the thermometer showed …49° C!

Heat, humidity and smog make living and working in Athens and Thessaloniki unbearable.

Many residents seek the nearby beaches early in the morning or after the sunset when the atmosphere is more pleasant.

The heat wave will flow down to 39 °C tomorrow Friday but over the week end 40° C will make us melt again. It is expected to last until beginning of next week.

Keep Calm and Stay Cool!
