Cyprus in for some nasty weather

Storms could be severe early Saturday, conditions to improve in the afternoon

Newsroom

A low barometer centered on Italy is heading east, expected to affect areas over Cyprus with showers and storms through Sunday.

Friday mixed skies have been partly clear with sunshine and clouds on and off, while rain showers and storms are expected later in the day. Snow, which could also be sleet, is also likely to fall on the highest peaks in the Troodos mountain range.

In the evening, skies will be mostly cloudy with high chances of rain in most areas as well as isolated storms in some parts of the island.

Local storms on Saturday could be severe and/or prolonged in the early part of the day while weather conditions will improve in the late afternoon except winds that could become very strong

Temperature lows are expected to register at 9° degrees Celsius in the interior, around 14 along the coast, and 4 degrees up in the mountains where frost is also expected to form. Chances of snow or sleet on Troodos mountain peaks remain high throughout the night.

Saturday will be mostly cloudy with rain showers in most areas as well as isolated storms in some parts of the island. Local storms could be severe and/or prolonged in the early part of the day while weather conditions are expected to improve in the late afternoon except winds that could become very strong.

Highs are expected to reach at 16° degrees Celsius in the interior, around 18 along the coast, and 7 degrees up in the mountains.

Sunday will be partly cloudy with chances or showers and isolated storms, while Monday and Tuesday weather is expected to be mostly clear with a slight rise in temperature.

Drivers in and around Troodos are urged to be cautious as police on Friday reported low visibility conditions.
