How do you go about closing off what many people see as the last proper month of summer? Well, if you’re anything like Malta, the answer is with a bang… and a couple of buckets of sweat.
The islands seemed to be onto a brief spell of cooler temperatures there for a second with cloudy and windy days seeing us through the red calendar week of Santa Marija, but as the final days of August line up with the last days of this week, the heat isn’t letting up.
Following a very hot and sunny Sunday yesterday that definitely lived up to its name, today will be setting the scene for even more of the same.
Highs of 32°C will dominate most of this week, but with the mercury going even higher tomorrow, apparent temperatures over the blistering couple of days are set to top the mid 30s, even going up to 36°C by Tuesday afternoon. The temperature in the evening won’t let up much either, with lows of 24°C across the board.
While those worrying highs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, it is at least slightly comforting to see that the lowest temperature and a day where clouds might return to the islands won’t only be the first day of the weekend, but also in the last 24 hours of August.

Maybe September will hold slightly fresher weather for Malta after all… but we’re going to have to get through another very hot week before that happens.
