A weak high-pressure system is affecting the area over Cyprus but sudden deteriorating conditions in Greece are also expected to affect the island this week.

Tuesday skies will be partly cloudy during the daytime with chances of light rain on and off, while mostly cloudy skies and local showers are expected in the evening.

According to weather officials, strong winds are also expected throughout the day and night, possibly reaching 5 points on the Beaufort scale.

Strong winds on Friday are expected to pick up even more on the windward side, as temperatures will drop gradually

Temperature highs will reach 18 degrees Celsius inland and along the coast, while it will be 9 degrees high up in the mountains. Lows are expected to drop to 5 degrees in the interior, around 10 in the coastal regions, while it will be 3 high up in the mountains where frost is expected to form in leeward areas.

A sudden deterioration of weather conditions in Greece, including a sharp drop in temperature, is expected to take place on Wednesday and last through Saturday, with Cypriot weather officials saying the island could also be affected by a weather pattern in the Aegean.

Wednesday skies will be mostly cloudy with chances of local showers, as well as snow or sleet up high in the mountains. Temperatures are expected to remain unchanged, slightly above normal averages for this time of the year.

Thursday and Friday weather will be mostly cloudy with chances of local showers and isolated thunderstorms. Snow chances will remain high with snowfall towards the end of the workweek likely to reach the foothills around the Troodos Mountains.

Strong winds on Friday are expected to pick up even more on the windward side, as temperatures will drop gradually and reach below normal averages for this time of the year.

The last measurement of the Troodos Square snow gauge was 26 inches, as recorded at 5am on Tuesday.
