The meltemi wind is the northerly wind which blows from July to October. Generally, the force ranges from 4-6, though this is only when the meltemi is present, as it is not as regular as in other areas of Greece such as the Cyclades. In the case that the meltemi isn’t present, there is a southerly wind which sometimes blows at force 2-4. During the summertime in Athens, you can expect hot summers averaging 29°C. In September and October, the temperatures are still in the twenties, too!
