Weather warning issued for western Greece as ‘Bogdan’ closes in
The Meteo weather service from the National Observatory issued a warning on Tuesday. Strong downpours and winds are coming from Italy to western Greece.
A storm system called a "Medicane" is expected to develop today. This storm may have some characteristics of a tropical cyclone.
There is a storm coming and it will be bad. It is going to hit some islands in the Ionian Sea that have been damaged by storms like this before. It will also hit the western part of mainland Greece, including Epirus.
This means that residents and visitors in these areas are advised to stay indoors during the peak of the storm, to secure any objects that may be a hazard, to stay away from the beach and to refrain from sailing, among other such precautions.
Heavy rain should fall in Macedonia, Thessaly, Thrace and the northern Aegean islands, according to Meteo.

Yellow weather warning issued in Malaga and along the Costa del Sol for strong winds and rough seas
Different parts of Spain are experiencing high winds and rough seas, especially the north-west of the country, while the Canary and Balearic islands are on alert for heavy rain. The weather is stable in Malaga province with sunshine and temperatures reaching a high of 31C, but from Wednesday that could change.
The Aemet weather agency has issued a yellow warning for rough seas and strong winds from 2pm until midnight on Wednesday in Granada, Almeria, and Malaga. Winds will be from the west at Force Seven strength and waves could be up to two or three metres high.
This means that on Thursday there will be a yellow warning in force from midday to 8pm. This is because there will be strong winds and rough seas.
The last week in September is marked by strong wind and unusually warm temperatures ranging from 17C to 31C. The bad news is that there is no sign of rain in Andalucía this week, and meteorologists are warning that this situation could continue into October. A few days ago, Aemet was forecasting rain for the Malaga province on Friday, but they have now reduced the likelihood of this to just 15%.

Australia weather: Heavy rain and flooding: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide
Almost every part of Australia will experience rainfall over the next 10 days as a massive rain bomb engulfs the country.
A storm is coming to the east coast of Australia and it will be very severe. There will be heavy rain, hail, thunderstorms, and flooding. This will happen mostly in southern New South Wales and Victoria.
A large low pressure system is set to collide with a cold trough, which will cause significant precipitation in Australia. Areas already experiencing flooding, such as northern Victoria and southern NSW, are expected to see the heaviest rain. Some places have gotten more than twice the amount of rain that they usually get in a whole year, and it's only been a month.
There is a chance of severe storms over the next three days. Moderate to major flooding is set to continue through NSW this week, with the worst of the weather expected on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Strong winds and even hail are expected in the eastern part of the state on Tuesday. The rain is expected to stop on Thursday, but more rain is expected over the weekend. The huge system will bring a lot of rain over the next 10 days.
Unseasonable rain is predicted to hit the Pilbara and the Kimberly areas of Western Australia early next week. There has been no precipitation in September, but could see some in October.
A low-pressure system that brought torrential rain and flooded dozens of river systems in inland New South Wales and the states north, has moved offshore, although forecasters say the situation is still 'evolving'.
There were flood warnings for 28 river systems from the inland west through to the Northern Rivers and the Mid North Coast early on Saturday. Major flooding was continuing in the town of Gunnedah after the river peaked at 8.24 metres on Saturday morning. The water is expected to stay high on Sunday.
Floodwaters are still slowly falling in Wee Waa, but they could remain above major flood levels into next week. Mayor Ron Campbell told AAP that the cotton town is protected by an 8km levee, but the flooding has destroyed local roads.
If we get a lot of rain this summer, we could have a record flood, Mr Campbell said. The wet weather has caused anxiety in the Tumbulgum community on the Tweed River. The rain flooded paddocks on Friday.
This means that even though it hasn't rained much lately, people are still worried about flooding because it was such a problem earlier this year. This person is saying that everyone in their area is always very tense, especially since another big event is coming up soon.
