In the upcoming days, the island will experience a mix of weather conditions, as a seasonal low-pressure system prevails in the region. This system is causing the relatively unstable weather patterns that have been affecting the island to weaken and gradually subside.
Starting today, the western and northern coastal areas will witness heightened cloud cover, potentially resulting in isolated rain showers. Meanwhile, the majority of other regions will enjoy predominantly clear skies, although some areas might see sporadic increases in cloudiness. As the day progresses, cloud development is anticipated, bringing with it isolated rain showers and the possibility of scattered thunderstorms. These conditions are expected, particularly in mountainous regions, the southern parts of the Troodos mountain range, and the eastern sections of the island.
Wind patterns will shift from the southwest to the northwest, initially displaying mild to moderate speeds, reaching around 3 to 4 on the Beaufort scale. These winds are set to gradually intensify, ranging from moderate to strong at approximately 4 to 5 on the Beaufort scale. Some coastal regions may experience occasional strong gusts, peaking at 5 on the Beaufort scale. Sea conditions will generally be moderately choppy in the morning, with the potential for increased roughness in select southern, western, and northern areas during the afternoon.
Temperatures are expected to soar to about 38 degrees Celsius inland, while coastal zones will experience milder temperatures of around 34 degrees Celsius in the southeast, east, and north. Other coastal regions can anticipate temperatures of roughly 32 degrees Celsius, while higher elevated regions will hover at approximately 29 degrees Celsius.
As the evening descends, the weather is predicted to settle into a mostly clear state, with intermittent episodes of low cloud cover in certain locales. Winds will maintain a dominant southwest to northwest flow, beginning as light to moderate at 3 to 4 on the Beaufort scale, and gradually diminishing to a gentle 3 on the scale. The sea will follow a similar pattern, starting off slightly turbulent before easing into a generally calm state.
By Wednesday, weather conditions will continue to offer mainly clear skies. However, as the midday hours approach, cloud development might lead to isolated rain showers, predominantly in elevated areas.
On Thursday, the island will continue to experience predominantly clear conditions. Nevertheless, during the early morning hours, there could be instances of sparse fog and increased low cloudiness in the interior and eastern regions. As the week draws to a close on Friday, the weather is projected to remain predominantly clear.
Temperatures are anticipated to experience a gradual decline until Friday, aligning more closely with the average seasonal norms. Stay tuned for the latest updates as the island's weather evolves throughout the week.
