The climate of Kefolonia (Greece)
Kefolonia or Cephalonia is the largest island of the Ionic islands and is part of Greece. Kefalonia is located in the Ionian Sea between the islands of Zakynthos and Lefkas. Off the coast the smaller island of Ithaka is situated. The capital of Kefolonia is Argostoli. The beautiful city is situated on a beautiful bay. A history and folklore museum can be found here. One of the most beautiful places on the island is the underground Melissani Lake situated in the Melissani Cave. The lake is fed by sea water which seems to flow into a bottomless pit at Katavothres. Kefalonia has a warm Mediterranean climate influenced by its location in the Ionian Sea. Summers are pleasantly warm. However, during the warmest part of the day temperatures may reach unpleasant values. Summers are very dry here. Winters are mild, it hardly ever gets cold. During the winter months long lasting and heavy rain is not uncommon.
