Weather officials in Cyprus have issued a yellow warning for Monday afternoon through Tuesday early morning, citing a cold front affecting the island and bringing along high winds, cold temperatures, and dumping rain throughout the early part of the week.

A yellow warning was set to go into effect Monday afternoon at 5pm through Tuesday early morning at 4am, with weather officials warning of high winds and powerful storms.

Partly cloudy skies on Monday are expected to turn mostly cloudy in the afternoon, with rain intensifying over parts of the island, including high winds, local showers, isolated thunderstorms, and snow high up in the mountains.

Winds will intensify further with officials expecting near gale force later in the evening, but heavy impact is not expected to last after midnight

Winds will also intensify further with officials expecting near gale force later in the evening. However, heavy impact from wind is not expected to last after midnight, especially out in the western parts.

Temperature highs will reach mid-teens inland and along the coast, while it be 3 degrees Celsius high up in the mountains.

Lows will drop down to 5 degrees in the interior, around 8 along the coast, and three below zero (-3) high up in the mountains, where frost is expected to form.

A gradual drop in temperature will reach noticeable levels on Wednesday, with levels expected to gradually go back up Thursday but still below normal averages for this time of the year.
