Temperatures to push past 40C

A heatwave over the next days will see temperatures rise over 40 degrees, according to the department of meteorology (DoM).
The DoM predicts temperatures will hit 40C over the weekend. However, worse is to come before that.
An official with the DoM told the Cyprus Mail that “although it is still too early to predict the exact temperatures for the upcoming days, we would like to warn people that on Friday the temperature will scale over the 40 degree mark in Nicosia.”
According to data from the DoM, the expected temperatures for the month of June are between 19 and 35 degrees in Nicosia. This year, the temperature has already risen higher than that, with the thermometer last Thursday hitting 38.9 degrees in the capital.
Last year the highest temperature recorded in June was 37.7 degrees, although the higher temperatures are not unusual for the island. In 2012 the highest temperature was 41 degrees and the highest temperature ever to be recorded in June was 43.9 degrees.
Meteorological Officer, Marios Theophillou, said that more information will be announced on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, the temperature on Wednesday is expected to reach 37 degrees inland, 33 on the coast and 27 in the mountains. A steady rise in temperature will begin on Thursday and continue through the weekend.
