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!
