Malta has been experiencing some relatively cooler weather as of late, with last week’s Gharajjex ta’ Santa Marija helping to make the summer heat slightly more tolerable.

Having said that, it looks like the scorching August weather that Malta is notorious for is set to make a temporary return this very week.

Malta International Airport’s (MIA) meteorological office has just reported that temperatures on Wednesday 17th and Thursday 18th August will rise to 36°C, although they’re set to feel as hot as 40°C. Temperatures will cool down gradually throughout the rest of the week, with highs of 31°C forecast for Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August.

Speaking of cooler weather, local Facebook page ‘Maltese Islands Weather’ is forecasting a somewhat colder and wetter weekend.

“Cold air in the upper levels of the atmosphere will slide over the hot and humid air closer to the Earth's surface around us, possibly leading to the development of a cold pool over the central Mediterranean,” the page explained in a post.

“We're expecting a strong wind (up to Force Seven) from the Northwest from late on Friday 19th August until late on Saturday 20th August. There could also be isolated showers and isolated thunderstorms during the first half of next week”, it continued.
