After days of heat warnings, met office issues lightening alert (updated)

Temperatures will be significantly lower than last week on Monday, reaching 34C inland, while isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected.

According to head of the met office Cleanthis Nicolaides, the thunderstorms will be accompanied by lightening, possibly in coastal areas, something which is unusual for this time of the year.

Weather portal Kitas also warned about the possibility of severe storms with torrential rain, hail and strong winds inland and at the coast.

The highest temperatures at the coast will be around 31C and in the mountains 25C.

The day will start partly cloudy but more clouds are expected to build up later in the day. Rain will most likely fall in the mountains but scattered showers and storms in all other areas are also possible.

At night, it will cool down to 20C in the Nicosia region and 22C near the sea. In and around Troodos temperatures will drop to 14C.

During the following three days the weather will be partly cloudy and temperatures are set to rise. By Thursday they will be above average.
