Very low temperatures and icy conditions in northern Greece were the main weather characteristics on Wednesday. The provincial road (Aghios Vasilios-Chortiatis) in Thessaloniki remains closed for precautionary reasons after the snowfall at New Year’s Eve.
Cars using the provincial roads in the areas of Imathia, Pella, Kilkis, Serres and Halkidiki need snow chains as well.
The snowfall in the areas of Kastoria and Florina, northwest Greece, has made snow chains imperative for cars using the local provincial road network and the national motorway in the sections between Kastoria and Florina via Nestorio, Aminteo and Vitsi.
Temperatures dropped below zero at dawn in several cities in northern Greece. Kozani had -5C, Nevrokopi -4C, Kastoria and Alexandroupolis -2C and Thessaloniki and Serres -1C.
