Roads in Paphos have been closed after rivers have overflowed while roads in the mountains on Sunday remained closed to those not driving a 4×4 or who have chains on tyres.

In Paphos the Kelokedaros-Nata road has been closed after the Ziripilli river overflowed, as is the Galataria-Salamiou road following the overflowing of the Xero river. Jelifos Bridge remains closed.

Meanwhile further snowfall in the mountains means the following roads are only open for those with a 4×4 or snowchains: Prodromos-Troodos, Platres-Troodos, Karvouna-Troodos, Pedouolas-Troodos, Pedoulas-Pinewood-Kakopetria, Promdromos-Lemythou, Prodromos-Trooditissa-Platres, Kakopetria-Karvounas, Palaichori-Agros, Madari-Polystypos and Polystypos-Handria.

As the rain has left many roads wet and slippery the police urge all drivers to act with caution and keep to a low speed.

Meanwhile, high winds and low temperatures will continue throughout Sunday, with further rains and isolated storms. Snow is expected to fall in the mountains, while the weather across the island is expected to improve in the afternoon.

The temperature is expected to rise to 14C inland and on the coasts and 1C in the mountains.

Rain, storms and snow are expected overnight and for the next three days.
