Feeling chilly? Cold temperatures set to persist due to ‘extensive anti-cyclone’
Great news for the winter lovers among us!

If you think the past couple of days have been colder than usual, you’re not wrong…

This time, however, we can’t pin the blame on Malta’s humid climate (although we’re pretty sure that’s not doing us any favours), rather, it turns out this is all because of an ‘extensive anti-cyclone’ which has formed over England.

Local weather page It-Temp Madwarna explained that this meteorological phenomenon is pushing cold, Nordic currents towards the centre of the Mediterranean Sea. This will eventually lead to low air pressure around the Maltese islands. 

Despite the cold days and even colder nights that we’re facing, the weather’s forecast to be generally clear and sunny. 

Having said that, do prepare yourself for some isolated showers, expected to hit the islands sometime today and tomorrow, as well as this coming Saturday and Sunday.

It-Temp Madwarna noted that winds will reach a maximum of Force Five, although these might get stronger towards the end of the week. 

These findings were corroborated by the ‘Maltese Islands Weather’ Facebook page, which added that “a mass of cold air over the Balkans is also affecting the Maltese islands.”

“Tuesday 25th January could become this winter’s coldest day. The maximum temperature will struggle to reach 10°C, whilst the nighttime minimum may dip to as low as 4°C, although this will feel colder,” ‘Maltese Islands Weather’ concluded.
