Rain, thunderstorms, and Troodos snowfall

Are you ready for a weather whirlwind?


In a weather rollercoaster set to hit Cyprus, the Meteorological Service Director, Kleanthis Nicolaides, warns of intense rain, thunderstorms, and the possibility of snow on the Troodos peaks.

Nicolaides explains that a northwestern wave from the Balkans, bringing low temperatures, is poised to shake up the region.

A weak low pressure, coupled with a barometric low from the Balkans, will bring a mix of weather conditions starting Saturday night.

Today, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with isolated showers possible.

Winds will shift from northeast to southeast, becoming southwest to northwest later. Temperatures will reach around 26°C inland and on the coast, and 16°C in the higher mountains.

Tonight, the weather remains partly to mostly cloudy with southwest to northwest winds. Temperatures drop to 14°C inland, around 15°C on the coast, and 7°C in the higher mountains.

Saturday starts partly cloudy, but expect increasing cloudiness in the afternoon with isolated showers, mainly in the western half.

By early evening, localized showers, thunderstorms, and strong winds will dominate. Temperatures stay above average.

Sunday brings mostly cloudy skies with afternoon showers, isolated thunderstorms, and a chance of snow or sleet on Troodos peaks. Very strong to strong winds persist. Temperatures drop closer to climatic averages.

Monday sees intermittent increased clouds with temperatures remaining close to average climatic values.

The weather may ease up, but the impact of the weekend's rollercoaster will linger.
