Heatwaves are all well good for the first couple of days of summer when you’d feel like a long hot day at the beach, but by the fifth week, everyone gets a bit tired of it all. Thankfully, this week might hold some sort of respite in Malta.
As multiple weather warnings have already stated, the first couple of days of this week aren’t looking too great for either summer or winter people.
Strong, near-gale force winds are set to bring dangerous weather to the Maltese islands over the next 48 hours, with tomorrow bearing the brunt of the negative forecast. In fact, we might even get some rare mid-July rain too, if we’re (un)lucky enough.
As for the rest of the week, however, it looks like things will stabilise back to normal… albeit at slightly lower temperatures than usual
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are set to be mainly sunny days, with highs of 30°C feeling just slightly warmer thanks to the dying down of the wind and its change of direction from northwesterly to westerly, gradually switching all the way to southwesterly by the end of Thursday.
A slightly reduced UV index of 9 and lows of 23°C should make for some relieving summer nights and “the first colder-than-average week this summer”, according to reliable forecasting page Maltese Islands Weather. Precautionary hoodie for that late-night BBQ, anyone?
