Heat wave hits Greece


Temperature has went up to 42 degrees Celsius in Greece as the new hit wave hit the country in the past 24 hours, according to Xinhua.

The thermometer reached 37-39 degrees in eastern Peloponnese and Attica, 41-42 degrees Celsius in Thessaly and 40-41 degrees in the northern parts of the eastern Central Greece, according to the recent predictions of the meteorological service of the National Observatory of Athens.

The Meteo service stated on Thursday that "Atmospheric conditions favor the transfer of hot air from Africa to our region, resulting in very high temperatures".

High temperatures along with high humidity levels increase the discomfort for the citizens of Athens and tourists.
