Heavy rain has been reported over mountains in Cyprus, while clouds in the interior were expected to produce brief local showers and even isolated thunderstorms.

After the previous week that started with hot weather and gradually became cloudy, this week began with mid-August showers over the mountains and thundering over areas inland. Afternoon rain also reached the capital of Nicosia in the afternoon.

Police issued a warning Monday early afternoon warning drivers to drive safely, keep low speeds and safe distances from other vehicles.

Afternoon clouds and rain over local areas in the interior were also expected to include possible isolated thunderstorms, possibly with hail initially, while mostly clear weather is expected later in the evening.

But some reports said light rain might continue in the evening due to increasing clouds but only over local areas, while strong winds are expected during heavy storms.

Rain is expected to continue on Tuesday while skies will be mostly clear for the rest of the workweek.

Temperatures are expected to climb slightly on Wednesday and more so on Thursday inland and in the mountains.
