Unless you’re working from home, there’s no way you haven’t experienced the wrath of this morning’s thunderstorms.
But whilst we were all busy trying to keep our hair from getting too wet, local weather page It-Temp Madwarna found the root cause of today’s bad weather.
Turns out it’s all down to something referred to as a ‘Mesoscale Convective System’ (MCS), which happened to form right over Malta.
An MCS is a complex of thunderstorms that becomes organised on a scale larger than your average thunderstorms. This usually persists for a number of hours.
Because of this meteorological phenomenon, It-Temp Madwarna is expecting “a lot of rain and flooding in the coming hours.”
But that’s not all!
Weather page ‘Maltese Islands Weather’ confirmed the possibility of hail hitting our islands this afternoon, after which point the weather’s expected to clear up.
The wind’s expected to reach Force Five to Six during the day, although this will subside to Force Three to Four this evening.
Whatever you do, don’t forget your umbrella!
