Strong winds of up to 9 on the Beaufort scale have already affected the Ionian Sea, while heavy rainfall is moving from west to east all over the country.
Locally severe hailstorms are expected in the Aegean islands as well, particularly in the Cyclades archipelago and Crete.
Attica is also expected to experience heavy rain on Wednesday, and authorities are warning the public about the possibility of localized flooding.
Heavy rain hit the Greek capital overnight, turning some Athens streets into small rivers before the waters could drain away.

Πολύ ισχυρή καταιγίδα έπληξε πριν μερικά λεπτά το λεκανοπέδιο της Αττικής, προκαλώντας τοπικά πλημμυρικά επεισόδια. Εκτός της βροχής, αυξημένη ήταν και η ηλεκτρική δραστηριότητα αλλά και οι τοπικοί ισχυροί άνεμοι και οι χαλαζοπτώσεις. Το βίντεο είναι από την περιοχή του Παγκρατίου.Πηγή: Jan Ollan Gina Curnza
