Low pressure ripples along a recent trough over Cyprus are expected to wane by Saturday, while weather officials say daily afternoon showers are likely to continue.
An unstable air mass that made way for a batch of storms over Cyprus is likely to weaken by Saturday, while humidity still remains above 50% in most areas.
Thursday skies will be mostly clear in many areas while clouds visible around noon are expected to increase rapidly in the afternoon with chances of showers and isolated thunderstorms over areas inland, in the mountains, and along parts on the eastern and southeastern coasts.
Very strong afternoon winds are likely to occur in the south, where a relatively calm sea is expected to turn into choppy waters. In the evening, mostly clear weather is expected but also increasing low clouds primarily in the north and out west.
Highs and lows
Maximum highs will reach 34 degrees inland, around 29 out west, 31 in all other coastal regions, while it will be 24 degrees up in the mountains. Minimum lows will drop to 19 inland, 21 along the coast, while it will be around 13 degrees up in the mountains.
Friday skies will be mostly clear but also with increasing clouds over some local areas. In some parts, cloud formations are expected to increase rapidly, with chances of showers and even isolated thunderstorms inland, in the mountains and foothills, and possibly even on the southern and eastern shores.
Mostly clear weekend
Weekend weather is expected to be mostly clear while increasing clouds at noon and in the afternoon will likely be associated with chances of local showers in the mountains.
Temperature is expected to remain the same throughout the weekend except in inland and in the mountains, where a slight rise is expected gradually over Saturday and Sunday. Overall temperatures will range close to the normal averages for this time of the year or slightly above average by Sunday.
