Μετά από πολλά χρόνια η Θεσσαλονίκη στρώθηκε με χιόνι του νοτιά. Τέτοιου είδους φαινόμενα παρατηρούνται σε ενδότερα και πιο ηπειρωτικά τμήματα συνήθως αλλά σε κάποιες περιπτώσεις είναι πιο γενικευμένο σαν φαινόμενο.

Η χιονόπτωση κράτησε κατά κύματα όλη την ημέρα, ενώ τις πρώτες βραδυνές ώρες γύρισε σε παγωμένη βροχή για λίγο.

   

When it takes you more than 10 years to see your hometown wearing its white dress, you feel that you want to go out there in the snowy streets and just looking around and staring at the snowflakes falling. For those who were born in 80’s that was just a typical snow. For those who were born after 2000 that was THE snow. The last time that Thessaloniki looked like the images below was in 2006. And if you go further back you could see that there was a good snow event (>=10cm) at least once per year.

I don’t want to say anything more. Ariadne (the name of this low pressure system) was as the song says “unforgettable” and we are gonna really miss her. We ‘ll miss her not for the amount of snow but for the general traits of this system. The highlight? Snowing with -5 deg C in the city centre, next to the sea. I can’t name a Mediterranean city, which can achieve such a situation. Enjoy as I did (photos from 10-11/1/2017):
