The heatwave that has been gripping Greece since last week broke the country’s highest-ever temperature on Monday afternoon.
The town of Makrakomi in Greece’s Phthiotis region in the eastern part of the Greek mainland was the hottest place not only in Greece on Monday but in the entire Europe as well.
The meteorological station of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) that is stationed there recorded a jaw-dropping 46.3 degrees Celsius (115.3 degrees Fahrenheit).
This temperature is officially the highest ever to be recorded in Greece’s network of hundreds of stations operated by NOA.
If you are in Greece, stay away from the sun, keep hydrated and visit our beautiful beaches always with sunscreen and umbrellas.
