Cyprus is set to enjoy a short break from the extreme summer heats that extended into the autumn season, as the met department announced Friday that several days of overcast skies and rainy weather are on the cards before temperatures climb anew.
According to met department’s weather forecast on Friday, a weak low-pressure system is affecting the area, with thick grey clouds forming particularly inland, in mountain areas and along the eastern coasts, where localized rainfall and isolated storms are expected, while storms may likely feature hail.
On Friday, temperatures inland will reach a maximum of 34C, the southern and eastern coasts will reach 32C, while the north and west of the island will see temperatures reaching 29C and mountain areas a maximum of 26C.
Friday night will see skies remain partly cloudy, with temperatures dropping to 19C inland, 21C at the southern and eastern coasts, 20C at the western and northern coasts, and around 13C at higher altitudes.
Clouds will be scarce early on Saturday, when temperatures won’t be recording a significant shift from Friday, but the day will become increasingly overcast, particularly at western and northern regions of the island, while isolated rains or even storms are expected at mountain and southern areas, but also inland in the early afternoon.
Cloudy skies will also be accompanied by a dusty atmosphere on Sunday and Monday, when temperatures are expected to show a slight increase, particularly inland and in mountain regions, to reach above average levels for the period.
