Rain storms swept through the districts of Nicosia and Larnaca on Friday cooling down hot temperatures that had been gripping most of the island this week.
A meteorological services official told The Cyprus Weekly that there had been reports lightning, rain and some hail mainly around the Nicosia district, the edge of the Larnaca district and the higher regions of the island.
“Temperatures have been cooled by about three or four degrees and the rainy conditions are expected to continue north. The current temperature right now in Nicosia is 30’C. By tomorrow (Saturday), we could see some of that bad weather travel east (towards the Famagusta district).”
Temperatures are expected to climb again by the weekend with conditions expected to be mostly sunny throughout most of the island.
