The Extraordinary Deterioration Bulletin of June 6, is upgraded to an Extraordinary Bulletin of Dangerous Weather Phenomena as a Barometric Low will be created in the Ionian which will move east and will cause bad weather & # 8220; GENESIS & # 8221 ;. In fact, today at 19.00 the secretary general Civil Protection Vassilis Papageorgiou will provide emergency information on the bad weather that is expected to hit much of the country.
The bad weather will mainly affect western, central and northern Greece from today Thursday until Saturday night with heavy rains and thunderstorms that will be accompanied by hail, high frequency of lightning and strong winds as reported in the Extraordinary Bulletin.
< p> To clarify that the strong winds that will prevail will not be due only to the system, but mainly due to the storms and therefore it is possible that they are even 2 to 3 Beaufort stronger than the average wind prevailing in the area.
From Thursday afternoon the northern Ionian, Epirus, western Sterea, Macedonia, Thessaly and from the evening hours probably Thrace will be affected.
According to competent sources based on the forecast of the met/models and the analysis by EMY, the following conclusions emerge in relation to the possible occurrence of flood phenomena during the period Thursday 9/6 Monday 13/6:
1. The atmospheric disturbance seems to be important and “persistent” for a large part of Greece.
2. The most dangerous phenomena with rapid rains and thunderstorms are detected in the 24 hour period of Friday, July 10.
3. Flash floods can occur in many cities and settlements of Western Sterea (including part of the Ionian), NW Peloponnese and Thessaly to Pieria and Sporades, with relatively mild relief and reduced flood protection.
4. Significant floods with overflowing rivers and large watercourses are very likely to occur mainly in the wider region of Thessaly due to the expected long duration of rapid rains, the mild relief of the riparian areas and the small slopes of the hydrographic network.
, the effects will be intense for the spatial zone from the Ionian and the West. Solid to Thrace via Thessaly. Thessaly is at the greatest risk of significant floods on Friday 10/6. Will send 112 to all areas.
