Orange weather alert issued for Wednesday

The Cyprus met office has issued an orange alert for Wednesday, warning that maximum temperatures are expected to rise to around 41C inland and to around 34C over the highest peaks in the mountains.

The new extreme high temperature warning will be in effect from 12noon to 5:00pm. It comes on the back of a yellow alert issued for Tuesday.

“Be prepared that high temperatures will lead to health risks amongst vulnerable people e.g. the elderly and very young. Listen to and act upon advice from the authorities,” the met office said.

Cyprus has been gripped by a protracted heat wave that is forecast to continue for the rest of the week. Temperatures hit record highs on Friday with 46C recorded in Nicosia, then edged down for a couple of days before picking up again on Tuesday.

Nicosia sweltered at 43C on Tuesday.

The forecast for Wednesday is for mainly fine weather with increased local cloud in the mountains in the afternoon. Temperatures will rise to 41C inland, 35C on the south east coasts, around 33C on the remaining coasts and around 34C in the mountains.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday will be mainly fine while in the afternoon there will be increased local cloud in the mountains which on Saturday may lead to isolated showers or thunderstorms.
Temperatures are expected to remain at the same levels until Friday at noticeably above the seasonal average, edging down on Saturday but remaining above average.
