Cyprus braces for changing skies and temperature swings


A low-pressure system is currently influencing weather patterns across the region, promising a mix of conditions for Cyprus in the coming days.

Today's forecast indicates predominantly sunny skies, though localized increased cloud cover is expected during midday and early afternoon, particularly in mountainous areas, which may lead to isolated showers. Winds will primarily blow from the southwest to northwest, ranging from light to moderate, at speeds of 3 to 4 Beaufort, but strengthening to strong, reaching 4 to 5 Beaufort in the afternoon along the southern coastlines. Sea conditions are forecasted to be slightly choppy. Temperatures are anticipated to reach around 27 degrees Celsius inland, approximately 25 degrees Celsius along the coast, and about 17 degrees Celsius in higher elevated regions.

Tonight, skies are expected to remain mostly clear, though intermittent low cloud cover may be observed along coastal areas. Winds will initially be predominantly from the southwest to northwest, light to moderate, at speeds of 3 to 4 Beaufort, later shifting to predominantly northwest to northeast, remaining light, at 3 Beaufort. Sea conditions will gradually become calm to slightly choppy. Temperatures are forecasted to drop to around 15 degrees Celsius inland and along the coast, and around 8 degrees Celsius in higher elevated regions.

Wednesday and Thursday are predicted to feature mainly clear skies, with occasional patches of high-level cloud cover. By Friday, increased cloud cover, both medium and high-level, is anticipated, with the possibility of isolated, primarily light, showers. Additionally, Thursday and Friday may see a presence of sparse atmospheric dust.

Temperatures are expected to gradually rise throughout the period, exceeding the average climatological values.
