The Met Service said on Tuesday that temperatures below normal for the season should be expected in the next days, as the region was affected by a cold air mass.
According to Met officer Panayiotis Michail, temperatures will record a marked drop of up to seven degrees.
Inland areas expected temperatures of around 17C on Tuesday, and 6C in the mountains. On Wednesday, temperatures were expected to drop to 12C inland and 1C in higher areas due to the cold air mass.
Temperatures in the next days were also expected to be lower than usual and frost will form in the plains.
Michail said more rain was expected later on Tuesday, as well as snow on Troodos.
Isolated showers were on the cards for Wednesday morning and possibly light snowfall in higher regions. The weather will improve from lunchtime onwards, apart from some rain in the east of the island.
Total rainfall in the Republic in the past 24 hours reached 11.9 millimeters, according to the Met Service.
Since the start of December, the Republic saw 42mm of rain, or 40 per cent of the month’s normal rainfall.
Most of the rain fell on the south side of Troodos, in the Limassol district, while the Famagusta area saw the lowest rainfall.
