Police on Thursday urged drivers to be especially careful due the presence of ice on some roads.

The roads leading to Troodos are open only to four-wheel drive vehicles or those with snow chains.

According to the morning briefing by police, there are no serious problems on the island’s main roads but due to frost the following roads are open but slippery:
Kakopetria – Karvounas
Kakopetria – Pinewood – Pedoulas
Pedoulas – Prodromos
Pedoulas – Kykkos
Prodromos – Platres
Pedoulas – Moutoullas – Kalopanayiotis
Prodromos – Lemithou
Orkontas – Campos

Drivers are asked to be very careful and drive at low speed to avoid accidents.

The met office said high pressure and a relatively cold air mass continue to affect the region, with the weather initially expected to be mainly sunny in several areas. However, by afternoon increased clouds are likely to give rain, while in the mountainous and hilly areas some light snow is expected.

Temperature will rise to 14 degrees centigrade inland, around 15 on the coast and 3 on the highest peaks.
