A yellow weather warning has been issued until tomorrow in light of the current weather conditions, the Met Office said on Thursday.
“The weather will be unstable with isolated storms and snow in Troodos,” Met Office official Panayiotis Lingis said. “Rain is expected in many areas.”
There is a low pressure in the region which explains the weather, which is likely to last until Sunday.
Lingis went on to say that the public should not panic because a yellow warning was issued.
“The yellow warning just means that the weather is potentially dangerous. It is not unusual and just means that people should be careful.”
“At the moment, it is raining in the east and south of the Island,” he added. “Temperatures are 13 to 14 degrees Celsius inland and 16 degrees on the coast, which is three degrees below average.”
Heavy rain was also reported n the north of the island, in Kyrenia and Karpasia.
Turkish Cypriot reports said houses have been flooded and three cars were carried away by a torrent in Trimithi.
