Torrential rain, strong winds and flooding is usually what many Maltese people’s 10th February looks like, but if this weekend’s weather forecast is anything to go by, the islands might be in for a change this year.
After today’s mostly sunny start, the rest of this weekend is set to continue this calm and warm spell, with highs of 16°C dominating the next three days. As for the evenings, tonight’s low of 10°C will budge down one degree tomorrow, only to go back up to the double digits on Sunday.
This year, it looks like the day of St. Paul’s Shipwreck will actually be not too bad
Typically full of horrible weather, Malta’s first public holiday promises warm weather, a slightly cloudy day and winds that don’t make it past Force 3 or 4 southwesterly gusts.
And that’s definitely a far cry from last year, where the stormy weather ended up giving the islands a shipwreck-turned-potential diving attraction.
Even if Sunday looks quite fine, the Maltese islands are still not quite in the clear… and Valentine’s Day could be when the bad weather hits
As temperatures start to decrease next week, Wednesday 13th will bring strong Force 6 winds along with cold days of 9°C highs and even lower evenings of 7°C. And yes, that’s also set to repeat itself the day after for Valentine’s.
So make the most of the great outdoors this weekend, because it looks like Valentine’s Day 2019 is all about cuddle weather.
