Snow is expected to fall in Chalkidiki, Sporades, Euboea and from Monday afternoon, while snow will also affect eastern Sterea (including Attica mainly the Eastern and Northern areas), as well as the mountainous and semi-mountainous areas of the Eastern and Central Peloponnese from Monday afternoon.
