Temperatures will get hotter towards the end of the week.
Had enough of Maltese heat? Well, we hate to break it to you, but summer’s just getting started.
Local weather page It-Temp Madwarna has just announced that the so-called ‘second wave’ of summer heat is set to hit the Maltese islands later on this week.
This, the page said, is being caused by a “North African anticyclone that’s growing stronger in the central Mediterranean.”
As a result of that, the weather’s set to be particularly sunny and warm from Thursday 23rd June onwards.

“Skies will get a bit foggy from Thursday onwards, although the UV Index will rise to 10 and 11. Wind will be generally light, reaching maximum strengths of Force Four,” It-Temp Madwarna wrote.
Most importantly, however, the page noted how Malta’s maximum temperatures will rise steadily from an average of 30°C at the start of the week, to around 38°C at the weekend.
The country’s minimum temperatures will follow a similar pattern, rising from 21°C to 26°C, according to It-Tempt Madwarna.
The Malta International Airport’s meteorological office predicts similar weather, although it’s forecasting highs of 36°C rather than 38°C.
Nonetheless, it noted that temperatures will feel like 38°C on Sunday 26th June.
Don’t forget your sun block!
