Heatwave ...

Some like it hot ...

Weather forecasters are warning of a prolonged heat wave up to 41 degrees Celsius. The temperature will gradually rise over the weekend affecting all the country

This is the time of the meltemi winds that cool the islands, like a hairdryer. However it seems the meltemi will be turning itself off, after the weekend.

Although the wind will be blowing from the North, however, it will do so as a whisper ...

The heat wave is expected to continue through the week into Thursday, Friday and Saturday, August 10-12, 2017, and the temperature is expected to decrease to normal seasonal levels around Sunday, August 13th.

So drink lots of fluids, so you don't dehydrate. No naked flames in the woodland areas, the fire risk will be high. Then as the winds drop, the mossies will become airborne, take all precautions, they will take no prisoners.

Lots of grumbles on the forums, at the moment, but it is August, and yes this is 'Your Skiathos - Welcome to paradise' ...

Its now the peak of the high season, this is when the locals are ringing the cash register, as fast as they can. Its now all about making money, and forget the niceties, get seated get fed, get paid, and turn the table as fast as you can.

Next week is the Greek Holiday weekend. The ferries will be full to bursting point, this week as they arrive from the mainland. The island and its five buses will be even more packed than they are now ...

Go with the flow, there is nothing you can do about it. The heat will be rising, and not just on the streets ...
