Clear weather is expected Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday with temperatures slightly above normal averages for this time of the year

A low pressure system is still affecting the island while a yellow warning will go into effect Monday morning at 11am due to extreme high temperatures inland, likely to rise to around 40° degrees Celsius. The weather alert will run through late afternoon at 5pm.

No humidity information was included in the yellow warning, while there were indications that levels are on the rise on the eastern and western coasts. However, the heat index, which combines air temperature and relative humidity to form human-perceived weather, remains low in Nicosia and around the capital due to humidity levels staying low in the interior.

Monday skies will be mostly clear with the possibility of very strong winds in the south in the afternoon. High temperatures are expected to reach 40 inland, 32 in the west, around 35 in all other coastal regions, while it will be 30 up in the mountains.

Clear skies are also expected in the evening, while there is a chance of low clouds and thin fog accumulation later on. Minimum lows will drop to 24 degrees inland, south and east, around 22 in the north and out west, while it will be around 17 in the mountains.

Clear weather is expected Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday while temperatures will remain along the same levels, slightly above normal averages for this time of the year.
