WINTER IN KYTHERA

by Dimitris Baltzis

The climate of Kythera is temperate Mediterranean. The average annual temperature is about +20 ° C and the average annual rainfall (lasting about 60 days) is 600 mm, the average cloudiness is 4 and the average wind strength is about 5-6 Beaufort with prevailing northeast winds and westerners. Many times during the spring there is a westerly-southwesterly wind called “probentza” which accumulates low clouds creating fog where special attention of seafarers is required. Snow is rare as well as temperatures below -4 ° C. The result of all the above is the euphoria of the soil and the flowering. The hills of Kythera due to their geographical location also have intense storms and impressive meteorological clouds. In the following collection we have selected the most impressive photos from these phenomena.
