'Geryon' weather front to hit the country in three steps over three days

In a weather alert issued on Saturday afternoon, a weather front codenamed ‘Geryon’ is expected to develop in three steps over three days: first, rain and local storms will arrive on Sunday evening, excepting eastern Macedonia and Thrace, yet reaching to islands in the Sporades and all the way to western Crete, then on Sunday evening until Monday evening weather phenomena will take a turn for the worst with a massive storm front scaling through the country from the east to the west. Finally, Geryon will, on Tuesday, reach all the remaining regions in the south, the east and the rest of the island regions. Winds are expected to reach up to 10 Beaufort in some regions.

Geryon is explicitly forecast to affect the capital Athens in full effect.
