Orange alert brings heavy rain and thunder

Cyprus braces for torrential downpours


Good morning, Cyprus! As the sun rises over our island, let's catch up on the latest weather report. Since last night, the Cyprus Meteorological Service has issued an orange alert, keeping us all informed about the ongoing weather situation.

What's been happening up there? Well, it's been quite the show. Thunderstorms, heavy rains, and even some hail have been making their presence known, mainly targeting the northern and eastern areas of Cyprus.

Throughout the night, the sound of raindrops tapping against windows and distant thunder has filled the air.

But that's not all — our mountainous regions have been dusted with snow, creating a picturesque scene straight out of a winter postcard. Yes, you read that correctly! Snow in Cyprus!

Let's not overlook the winds either. Blowing from northeast to southeast, they've been swirling around, occasionally picking up to strong forces along the northern coast. It's been a windy affair indeed!

In terms of temperatures, inland areas have experienced a cool 12 degrees Celsius, while coastal regions have been slightly warmer at 15 degrees. Up in the mountains? It's been a chilly 2 degrees — perfect weather for snow activities!

As night falls once again, the storm continues its performance. Thunder and lightning illuminate the sky, creating a spectacle for all to see. But fear not, Cyprus, for we're a resilient bunch.

So, grab your umbrellas, stay indoors, and stay safe, Cyprus! This storm may be intense, but together, we'll get through it. Keep an eye on the skies, and remember, clearer days are ahead. Stay tuned for updates, and let's weather this storm together!
