Greece to bake in season's first heatwave, temperatures could hit 43°C

Greece will endure a three-day heatwave starting tomorrow with temperatures exceeding 40 degrees Celsius, the country's civil protection minister has said, warning of a high wildfire risk.

The heat "will peak on Wednesday and Thursday," Vassilis Kikilias told reporters ahead of a cross-ministry meeting.

As a result, Greece's fire risk warning will be placed at a "very high" level of four on a scale of five, he said.

Meteorologists had warned that temperatures could hit 43°C this week before falling at the weekend.
