No major problems in road network after rain.

Police said Saturday the road from Panayia to Kilada ton Kedron in Paphos was closed due to rock-slide but no major problems were caused to the main road network by the heavy rain that fell overnight.

A police statement said the Panayia to Kilada ton Kedron road was closed near Kountoures after a rock-slide late on Friday afternoon.

The authorities were notified to clean the road, police said.

No other major problems were reported but police appealed to motorists to be cautious when driving on the wet roads.

Police urged the public to drive slowly and keep a safe distance from the vehicles ahead.

Motorists must also avoid driving through puddles because there was a danger of skidding and hydroplaning, police said.

Where necessary, drivers should turn on their lights to make their vehicles visible.

The Met Service said Saturday more rain and local storms, including hail, should be expected throughout the day.

Troodos mountain could also see some snow or sleet. In some areas the weather phenomena could be intense and protracted. Temperatures will reach 14C inland, around 16C in coastal areas, and 6C in the higher regions.

The phenomena are set to continue on Sunday with no marked change in temperature. Local showers are expected on Monday and Tuesday along with a gradual rise in temperature, which will however, remain below the average for the season.
