Wintry scenes in the South

While weather conditions in the TRNC are not quite as severe as predicted, the temperatures will remain unseasonably low until the weekend.

Meanwhile across the border, the South is experiencing heavy snowfalls, leaving many schools remaining closed. The South Cyprus police report that 26 villages are cut off.

Villages around Limassol had a power cut lasting several hours, and strong winds, particularly around the coast caused some damage.

In the Troodos region, air temperatures fell to minus 6 degrees and up to a metre of snow is expected.
