October heatwave had beaches flooded with bathers, but cooler weather is on the way

It was an unpresented heatwave in October over the weekend with the temperature in Cyprus reaching a high on Sunday of 40 C inland.

As expected, beaches all across the Mediterranean island were flooded with bathers trying to get cooled down.

At the same time, the Meteorology Service issued a yellow alert over extreme heat and authorities kept warning the public to avoid too much sun exposure.

However, as from Monday the weather is changing noticeably – becoming cooler by the hour.

The forecast is that the temperature will drop by even five degrees Centigrade by late Monday-early Tuesday.

And and come Wednesday and Thursday rain and thunder will be on the way – mainly inland and in the mountains.

Meteorologists have also predicted that autumn conditions will finally prevail and that air conditioning units will no longer be necessary – at least for a few months.
