Cyprus will come under the spell of Greece’s severe weather front dubbed ‘Barbara’ as from Wednesday with low temperatures, frost and heavy snowfall in Troodos mountain areas on the way.
Head of the Meteorology Service, Kleanthis Nicolaides, also told Philenews the temperature is expected to fall up to seven degrees below normal levels. But the phenomena won’t be as intense as in Greece.
Nonetheless, for the first time this winter, days of total frost are expected in the mountains but improved conditions are expected over the weekend.
“We will not see snow in Nicosia (inland)…but Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be noticeably chilly all across Cyprus,” Nicolaides also said.
Temperatures will rise slightly but steadily as of Friday, he added.
‘Barbara’ snow-blanketed Athens and other parts of Greece as of Sunday with traffic having been banned in several main roads.
