Fog remains over the roads Kakopetria-Karvounas, Kakopetria-Spilia, Kakopetria-Pinewood and Kykkos-Kambo, while rock and landslides have affected the Orkontas-Kambos road.

The Korakou-Flassou road is closed for all vehicles.

According to the Met Office, rain will continue throughout the afternoon with snowfall in the mountains.

Overnight the snow will continue to fall in the mountains and the higher foothills.
