Meteorologists disagree on ‘mini’ heatwave What they say about 40C likely next week

Forecasters are warning that the first major heatwave is just around the corner as the mercury is expected to hit 30C at the weekend and the ‘mini’ heatwave is expected to last for at least a week.

In particular, meteorologist Giorgos Tsatrafillias even talks about 40 degrees Celsius. Temperatures will be high until the end of the first week of June, with a slight drop during the European election weekend. In his post, Mr. Tsatrafillias states that the eight regions that will see record high temperatures during the season are: Thessaly, Central Macedonia, Boeotia, Fthiotida, Aitoloakarnania, Peloponnese, Crete and the Dodecanese.

Kolydas: “Let’s not rush”

In the article “Let’s not rush”, the meteorologist and EMY director Thodoris Kolidas emphasizes after the positions of meteorologists for a high heat wave in the coming days with the arrival of June.

“Many are rushing to tell us what the hottest day will be next week. But maybe they are in a hurry and there are big discrepancies between the models already from Sunday, making the forecasts quite uncertain”, says Mr. Kolydas.

In particular, he says, “Many are running to tell us what the hottest day of the next week will be. But perhaps in their haste, they forget to notice that there are huge discrepancies between the models on Sunday, which makes forecasting quite dangerous.

– Warmth is definitely coming and it can be seen by the change in temperature at 850hPa

– 850hPa temperature change in the video, as well as two maps with large temperature differences between them (ECMWF-GFS)”.

Arnautoglu: “Perceptible increase in temperature after May 30”

ERT forecaster Sakis Arnautoglou warned in his article that in the next few days, very high temperatures will be observed in the country, the mercury will exceed 36 degrees.

The meteorologist predicts that temperatures will start to rise from Friday, with an average temperature of 31 degrees, Saturday 33, Sunday 35, Monday and Tuesday – the hottest days – an average temperature of 36 degrees, and Wednesday 35 degrees, as shown in the graph on Facebook. In fact, he says that the temperature will be 2-3 degrees higher in the western and southern mainland of Greece, as well as in Attica and Crete, away from the sea.

Accordingly, it predicts 3-6 degrees lower temperature in mountainous areas (e.g. 500-1000 meters altitude), and 3-5 degrees lower, but relatively high temperature in coastal areas and islands.

Kallianos: “As soon as June comes, it will smell like summer”

Meteorologist Yiannis Kallianos spoke of a “warm invasion” that will begin on Sunday. “On Saturday, the temperature on the mainland will be 32-34°C, locally 35°C in heat-sensitive areas (Thessaly, Central and Eastern Mainland, Eastern Peloponnese). On Sunday, temperatures will approach 35-36°C or even exceed it, and a further rising trend will be observed from Monday, June 3”, he noted in his article, among other things, how long the hot occupation will last. it is still unclear.

In fact, Mr. Kallianos published the indicative maximum temperatures in Athens:

“As you understand, from next Sunday, June 2, we will enter summer temperatures, and of course the temperature forecast for the next 4-5 days carries risk, so I have marked it as “with reservations” or “with great reservations.” , he emphasized.
