This summer cloud

over the church

of Agios Nikolaus

in Xerocampos is a characteristic that indicates

the presence of strong turbulence and intense winds at high altitudes.

 

Typical of these clouds

is to dissolve rather quickly,

even if often are rather large, and not to give sequel to rainfall.

 

If then the winds that influence them come

from the

North/North-West

it is likely the arrival

of the traditional

summer greek wind,

dry and taut, named "Meltemi".

 

Other natural signs

of impending

weather change

(to be taken into consideration if you

intend to practise

yachting or to camp in these areas) are the annoying presence

of flies (which become aggressive probably because they

perceive better

than us the

lowering of atmospheric

pressure that precede and accompany the Meltemi) and the colors of the sea which become very clean and well-defined taking all shades of blue and green.
