It’s not unusual to experience snow at some point in the winter and there is the risk of an occasional frost, but it’s still possible to sit outside in the sun in November and December. However, the winter nights are quite cold and when it rains, it really rains, with the road becoming a stream.
The rains usually come (hallelujah!) at the end of October and there can be some spectacular electrical storms that go on for ages before the rain starts. January and February can bring anything from warm sunshine, thick fog, heavy rain, snow and hail.
Snow, February 2008
Cyprus has a mostly Mediterranean climate with long, hot summers and mild, wet, winters. Because of Pano Arodes’ elevated position, there’s often a refreshing breeze, especially in the afternoon.
It’s most unusual to get any rain from May to October and the hottest months are June, July and August. There can be some cool misty evenings (and early mornings) at the height of summer and it begins to cool down during September, when you may need to put a blanket on the bed.
