Burst of wind, falling temps, showers and thunderstorms expected but conditions set to improve


A low pressure system is expected to affect Cyprus later this week, with falling temperatures, strong winds, and thunderstorms in the picture but conditions are set to improve on the weekend.

Wednesday skies will be mostly clear in the daytime following a morning period of low visibility due to fog but medium and high altitude clouds are also expected back on the scene after noon.

Strong winds could also batter coastal areas while small amounts of dust in the air will stick around from time to time through Thursday.
