The intense bad weather system "Hephaistion" that hit the country from Sunday 5/1/2020 - Tuesday 7/1/2020 gave particularly high precipitation (rainfall / snowfall) with the strongest occurrences being found in Evia, Crete, the Cyclades and Attica.

The map above shows the 7 largest cumulative heights of precipitation until 17:00 on Tuesday afternoon 7/1 according to the Athens National Observatory 's network of meteorological stations / meteo.gr.

In Sfakia, Askifou got 236 mm, after already receiving 423 mm of rain between 28/12/2019 - 03/01/2020, making a total of 659 mm of precipitation in just 10 days!
All the best,

I've been watching the storm on the Chania harbour live webcam over the passed few days and it's been pretty spectacular - still ongoing today!
