How hot is Cyprus?

Cyprus is hot - although politically in Europe, for climatic purposes it is in the middle-East. The summer (July/August) temperatures reach 40oC. The record is 44.4oC which is hot. Bear in mind that these are shade temperatures and the coastal cities become very humid in the summer, making it feel more uncomfortable.

The spring (March-Early May) is mild - temperatures in the 20s centigrade. The Cypriot winter is brief - January and February.

In the mountains, it is cooler - Cyprus has a ski resort on mounts Troodos and Olympus.
