Weather pulls no punches this week

Police urge motorists to be careful despite signs of slight improvement in weather

Newsroom

Roads in rural Limassol were affected by rockfall on Tuesday morning, as severe weather continues over Cyprus with rain and heavy winds.

According to police, the road network in rural Limassol has been affected by rockfall on a number of roads, including Amiandos-Troodos and Gerasa-Kalo Chorio. 

Low visibility

Mudslides and rockfall incidents were not reported in other areas by early morning, but police urged motorists to drive carefully and maintain low speeds, while also keeping a safe trailing distance behind other vehicles in front of them. But officials said chances of flooding in some areas remained as well as low visibility in some parts of the island. 

A yellow warning issued overnight, due to precipitation and strong winds near gale level, was set to expire Tuesday afternoon at 4pm.

Midweek weather

Officials said as weather improves gradually through midweek, local showers and isolated thunderstorms would continue through Christmas Day and Boxing Day and at times could intensify.

Tuesday skies will be mostly cloudy with local showers and isolated thunderstorms, while snow is expected to fall on Troodos. Heavy southwesterly winds are also expected to reach near gale levels.
