Kastani beach with a rough sea.

Windy but so beautiful! Kastani beach yesterday afternoon. No sunbathing was possible because the sea came up to the bushes but it was wonderful to walk up and down and sunbath standing up.

Very windy today

Last night and this morning it was very windy. The wind was coming and going and with great force. It took one of our window shutters of its hinges. My washing, especially socks, I found all over the garden. This part of the harbor you cannot past without getting wet.

For more information about Skiathos see the comment that Skiathian made.

Skopelos harbor around 08.30 hours

After almost two days of rain, Skopelos has emerged and as far as we can see without a lot of damage. We toured around a bit and did not see a lot of rubble on roads and nowhere gutters were overflowing. We don’t know how the situation is on the rest of the island. There was a lot of rain but it wasn’t torrential. Out of precaution car owners were asked to remove their vehicles out of the main street of Skopelos.
Schools are not open today in many places in the country including on Skopelos. This way they will be able to handle any damage to the schools.

We have heard that on Skiathos they have had major problems with the water and a couple of hundred people had to be evacuated from hotels towards the end of the island. There were problems at the airport too. We hope that these problems will be resolved soon. As far as we know nobody got hurt.

Will it, or not

The bad weather in Greece is not over yet and will last at least until Sunday. This is a link showing Greece and the areas that will be affected the next 48 hours. meteoalarm

Storm with a lot of rain might also hit the Sporades.

This Greek weather warning is taken from the Hellenic National Meterological Website (EMY) EMY website

I have translated this warning because the Sporades is also mentioned in it.
A. Rain and storm in certain areas will be heavy. They will start early in the morning in the Ionian sea, southern Peloponnese, Crete. In the afternoon it will affect the rest of the Peloponnese, the mainland (including the Athens area) Evia, the Cyclades and possibly the Sporades.

The bad weather is going to be particularly heavy in the Eastern Peloponnese, the Cyclades and possible in the Athens area. In the evening the bad weather will have moved to the islands in the East Aegean and the Dodecanese.

B. Winds will vary from 8 and in some places 9-10 Beaufort in south Ionian and the rest of South Greece.

Bad weather

It is hard to imagine that in the next couple of days it will get very windy and it will rain a lot after that. It is not 100% clear when the weather will start to change and in which area the bad weather will hit the most so we ask you to be careful when you are traveling. Check with your travel agent about boats etc. The temperature will also drop significantly.

Meteo is one website that does predictions but keep looking and see if it changes. http://www.meteo.gr/cf.cfm?city_id=230#
