A low pressure system is affecting areas over Cyprus, with cloudy skies and poor weather conditions expected to stick around at least until Monday.

Friday weather will be mostly cloudy with local showers and isolated thunderstorms affecting parts of the west initially and other areas later on.

Winds will range generally between moderate and strong throughout the day, while very strong winds are likely to occur in the early part of the day.

Maximum high temperatures will reach 16° Celsius inland, around 18 in the coastal regions, while it will be 6 degrees up in the highest elevations.

Weekend temperatures are expected to drop gradually and will remain below normal averages for this time of the year

Minimum lows will drop down to 6° Celsius inland, around 8 in all coastal areas, while it will be 1 degree up in the highest elevations where frost is expected to form.

Weekend temperatures are expected to drop gradually where they will remain below normal averages for this time of the year.

Saturday and Sunday skies will be mostly cloudy with local showers and isolated thunderstorms expected throughout parts of the day, including Monday mainly around noon.

Snow is expected to fall on Saturday on the highest peaks, while snow or sleet is expected in the foothills of Troodos Mountains throughout the weekend as well as Monday.

Road warnings in the mountains and other rural areas still remain in effect. Several roads leading to Troodos are not accessible except for vehicles equipped with four-wheel drive or anti-skid chains.

Officials also warn drivers who may use bridges and secondary roads to be extra careful, as rainwater, black ice and mud could be dangerous. Click here for the Cyprus Police app to stay in the loop, with latest updates available for Android phones and iPhones.
