Cyprus

Temperatures set to plunge next week

A gradual weather improvement is expected from Sunday afternoon until Monday while the temperature is set to drop from Tuesday, the met office said.

Saturday’s torrential rains in Limassol caused floods in the old part of the city and the coastal area.

The fire service received dozens of calls, while crews of the Limassol municipality and members of the civil defence were mobilised to assist with clearing blocked rainwater drainage, pumping water from buildings and removal of drivers and vehicles trapped in floodwaters. No injuries were reported.

Spokesperson of the fire service, Andreas Kettis, said the service responded to more than 20 incidents in the centre of Limassol.

Power outages occurred in several areas of the Limassol district due to damage to power lines caused by lightning.

The met office told the Cyprus News Agency that the current weather patterns are gradually expected to improve from Sunday and up to Monday but a new system is expected to affect the island from Tuesday. More information would be given later, it said.

The temperature on Sunday and Monday is expected to reach 15 degrees Celsius inland, 17 C in the coastal areas and 4C in the higher mountainous areas.

Lower temperatures, below the seasonal levels, are expected on Tuesday and Wednesday, the met office said.
