The Climate of Greece
The climate in Greece is typical of the Mediterranean climate: mild and rainy winters, relatively warm and dry summers and, generally, extended periods of sunshine throughout most of the year. A great variety of climate subtypes, always within the Mediterranean climate frame, are encountered in several regions of Greece. This is due to the influence of topography (great mountain chains along the central part and other mountainous bodies) on the air masses coming from the moisture sources of the central Mediterranean Sea.
How to read a forecast map
Drawing the isobaric contours (curves that connect places with the same atmospheric pressure) the meteorologist defines the low (L) and high (H) barometric systems, as well as areas of smooth barometric field. Then they look for the position of fronts and examines the areas that would be affected by the fronts and low barometric systems.
