The hot weather of recent days is coming to an end, while next week temperatures may even be below average, Met officer Panayiotis Georgiou said on Thursday.
“It is normal that temperatures fluctuate at this time of the year,” Georgiou said. “There will also be some isolated storms during the next few days.”
With a weak low pressure system affecting the area, temperatures are forecast to rise to 38C inland on Thursday, about six degrees higher than is normal for this time of the year.
While the average maximum is 28C at the coast, temperatures will rise to 30C to 33C.
From Friday, temperatures will drop and over the weekend some rain is expected in the afternoons, especially in the Nicosia and Troodos regions.
Sunny weather will prevail in most areas however.
According to the Met officer, next week top temperatures may be below average, less than 32C.
