According to the network of 53 meteorological stations of meteo.gr of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA), June 2024 was marked by several days with higher positive temperature deviations than usual, resulting in the warmest June since 2010 across Greece, by far warmer than the second warmest June (2012).
