Clothes

Hi

We are heading to Athens in 10 days - my second visit but the first one was late spring time. Just want a quick check about the right type of clothes ..... jeans, light weight jackets etc - will they be about right ie we don't expect hot but pleasant day time weather ideal for walking around? City type smart casual clothes?

Any advice appreciated thank you.

Sounds about right. Apart from a cool break of 3-4 days about 2 weeks ago, when temperatures dropped to 10-15 c, these days it gets up to 25-26 c.

Thanks. 25C sounds like luxury!

It is too early to predict the general weather condition for 10 days forward, it can take a sudden change so be prepared for temperatures like 25-17. Have a windproof jacket ready.

The Greeks turn on the heating (if they can afford it) mid November, that means it will be below 19 C.

Thank you - we will come prepared for that range of temperatures as well as for showers but will hope for the hotter temperatures!

I would also bring something waterproof. After the long, dry spell of summer, rainfall shoots up in October to an average of 40mm and 4 days of precipitation. November, which you're getting close to if not into, is considerably wetter.

Some of those who live there are glad of the rain - but I hope you'll be a lucky tourist and have sun.
