Snow on Thasos
It is a snowy day today. It’s sunny, but cold. On the south side of the island there is snow only on the surrounding mountains, whereas on the north, snow has covered everything.
Generally, the south part of the island has a much better climate than the north. During the summer it is warmer in the south, there is less rain, the sun sets almost 2 hours later and there is not as much wind. During winter, it often happens that in Limenaria it is a real spring day, while the villages and the sea in the north are covered in thick fog.
It is the same with the snow. In the north it snows a couple times during the winter, whereas in Limenaria it snows once in every 10 years.

Average daily temperature on Thasos is 10 °C.
This is how Potos, Limenaria, Alyki and Limenas look under snow.
