Cypriots have been told to brace themselves for stormy weather, and boat owners have been forewarned to check their vessels are properly moored in Larnaca marina where strong winds are expected on Wednesday.
Authorities inspected the Larnaca marina vessels on Tuesday morning, moving two large vessels in the port to ensure safety, and securing several yachts. The marina’s director, Christos Petrides, said the sea should get choppy with northeasterly winds expected to reach speeds of up to 80 kilometres per hour.
Several boat owners could be seen in the morning and throughout the day tending to their property, Petrides said.
The met office has said it will get even chillier by Cyprus’ standards, with the temperature over the next few days ranging from 4 degrees Celsius to 7 degrees Celsius in Nicosia.
It will be somewhat warmer in the coastal cities, but a chilly -2 degrees Celsius on the mountains. Expect storms, snow, and rain. By Friday, expect even stronger winds and more snow. And Saturday will bring more rain, storms, and snow but also the promise of a slightly warmer afternoon.
