The new website presents a state-of-the-art weather forecast for five days. It is produced with a high-resolution meteorological model that is much more detailed than other systems in use for Cyprus and the area. The weather information includes temperature, rain, wind and visibility for municipalities, districts and the larger region. It monitors real-time weather at 13 locations in Cyprus, shows satellite observations, and serves the different communities in English, Greek and Turkish. When needed, the website will provide warnings for weather extremes such as storms and heavy rains, heat waves and fogs. The information is easily accessible by PC, tablet and smartphone. The public is invited to submit suggestions to further improve the information and tailor the forecasts to the needs of the different sectors in Cyprus.
