This weather phenomenon in January & February in Greece is referred to as "Alkyonides." Sitting in cafes drinking coffee, people will remark on the high temperatures in early February, accompanied by "Ahhhh, Alkyonides" with a knowing nod. In fact, sitting having coffee in a cafe is exactly where I first heard of the term.
"What's this got to do with unseasonably warm days in February in Greece?" one might ask. Ah ha!...
So there you have it! Even the weather in Greece can stem from mythology.
