Weather apps ...

More advice from those in the know ...

Apparently its going to rain today, synchronise your services, and charge up those I-phones. For the less technically gifted - Look out of the window, and perhaps buy an umbrella ...

The island needs some rain, it did not get much during the winter. Prepare for glum faces, from those here, and those arriving today, and a stampede into town by those who do not know what to do.

Needless to say its a beautiful clear sky sunny morning ...

11:30am Large spots of rain have arrived from an ever increasing murky sky.

13:15pm Steady heavy rain, people hiding in bus shelters and under cover. If this were a cricket match, they would say no play before tea. Still the air is fresh if not a little chilly.

17:00pm Its been raining on and off since lunchtime. Currently its tipping it down. The forecast looks a little iffy for tomorrow too, with the chance of a thunderstorm. Most of today's flights made it in and have departed.

MON5624 from Manchester - An A321 Airbus was diverted to Salonica (Thessaloniki) due to the weather. Looks like it may stay there too.

Lots of tourists with long faces in town - Nothing you can do but get a bottle of wine, a bar of chocolate and read a good book ...

Three flights expected tomorrow, chance of a complimentary excursion to Athens or Thessaloniki too ...

22:15pm Latest update on the Mighty Monarch. Its tucked up in Thessaloniki overnight. Weather permitting it will dash down between the showers and possible thunderstorm activity. It's now not due back in Manchester untill 1515 tomorrow

Looks like another day for a glass of red, bar of chocolate and another good book ...

  1. It is ok for some. We are sat at the airport wondering whether the Monarch flight will arrive here to collect us or decide Athens is a better option. We will see.
