The met office has issued an orange weather warning from 10pm on Wednesday to 7am on Thursday, warning of extremely low temperatures on the mountains.

The minimum temperature in the Troodos area is expected to drop to around -10C overnight, OC inland and 2-5C on the coast.

People are urged to be extremely careful when outside, as the extreme cold temperatures might lead to health problems among vulnerable groups of the populations, such as the elderly, infants and homeless people.

Several roads on mountainous areas in Cyprus have already been closed due to the dangerous presence of snow.
