Temperature highs/lows?
 
Looking for some general information on the annual high/low temperatures for various parts of the south of the island as part of the area selection process for all year round living.

Hi Jim

Take a look at Cyprus Average Temperatures to get some idea of the average temperatures across the island.

Humidity is another factor you need to consider. Humidity can be very high at the lower levels in summer but decreases as the elevation increases.

I've been living here for 18 years and have known the temperature to reach 40 degrees on a couple of occasions and once, in winter, we had snow but it didn't settle.

Cheers,

Thanks Nigel likewise.

also sometimes when it rains, it can cause flooding & even some mud & rock fall.
Also there is the red rain once a year. It will cover absolutely everything & will take a good few thorough washes to get rid of it. Any pools will be turned a rust red colour.

It's been 35 today and my wife and I drove to Troodos; 28 degrees and low humidity. I had goose pimples on my arms; it felt quite chilly in the shade.

We drove on to Kakopetria for lunch it was a bit warmer, had trout at our favourite taverna where we've been regulars for 35+ years. It had warmed up quite a bit when we left and was even hotter when we arrived home.

Watched Lewis Hamilton slaughter the rest of the field at Silverstone then had a SCAN (Senior Citizen's Afternoon Nap) for a couple of hours.

The red rain BlackRooster mentioned is caused by sand from the Sahara and sometimes the Middle-east. You know it's coming - the clouds are orange! Best to leave your car in the garage.

Cheers,
