Higher than normal temperatures expected over next three days

For the next three days, temperatures will be higher than usual for this time of the year, reaching 40C inland. The high temperatures are due to a low pressure system which is affecting the region.

On the east coast, temperatures will reach 37C, on the southern coast 35C and 33C in other coastal areas. In the mountains, they will peak at 31C.

At night, 25C inland and in the south and east is forecast, 22C in other areas close to the sea and 18C in Troodos.

A small drop in temperatures is expected from Thursday.

This is not the first time this month that temperatures have soared. In the beginning of the month temperatures reached their highest of any July in the past 30 years, claiming the lives of two women aged 60 and 75.

The 75-year-old woman, who had a pre-existing medical condition, died from heatstroke on July 2. The death of the 60-year-old, who was suffering from health problems, was announced on July 3.

On July 1, the maximum temperature in Paphos airport reached 41.6C. On July 2, the maximum temperature at Athalassa in Nicosia reached 44.6C, in the new port of Limassol 41.4C, in Paralimni 41.9 C and the mountains 36.7C.
