Can you feel the heat? According to MIA, last month was the hottest June recorded on the Maltese islands since 1923 with mercury recording 37.8 °C on June 9th – the hottest day of the month.

Despite a rather wet and stormy May, June also proved to be one of the driest months ever, becoming one of four in the past 70 years to record zero precipitation.

A lack of precipitation also results in fewer clouds in the sky, which also means longer hours of bright sunshine. Throughout the month of June, the sun shone for a total of 350 hours, which is 22 hours more than the norm. The average sea temperature also saw an increase to 22.5°C, one degree warmer than the norm of 21.5°C

Malta wasn’t the only country to experience uncharacteristically hot weather last month

According to the World Meteorological Organisation, the average temperature in June throughout Europe was 2°C above average, which makes it the hottest on record for the entire continent.

As per a study published by the World Weather Attribution, Europe’s early and exceptionally intense heatwaves are consistent with climate scenarios which predict more frequent, drawn-out and intent heat events as a result of ‘human-induced climate change’.
