Rain is also expected next week.
These past few days have been extremely sunny and humid, with temperatures feeling hotter than 40°C practically all week – but that’s all about to change tomorrow…
According to Facebook page ‘Malta Weather’, Force Six to Seven north-westerly winds are expected to hit the islands from Friday afternoon until late Saturday.
This is due to “an Azores high pressure system [that] contrasts with low pressure over the eastern Mediterranean.”
“Waves are expected to reach up to eight metres at times so it will be too dangerous to swim along the western and northwestern coast and beaches of Malta and Gozo,” the page added.

According to the Malta International Airport’s meteorological office, temperatures will still feel as hot as 38°C on Friday. Luckily, however, these will cool down to a more comfortable 30°C (feels like 32°C) on Saturday and Sunday.
The strong wind is expected to subside on Sunday, although isolated showers and thunderstorms are expected during the start of next week.
