The weather can’t seem to settle down this spring! Various weather sites have today reported bleak conditions to be expected for the coming Easter weekend, with wind, grey skies and Sahara desert sand in the air.

Malta Weather predicts “cloudy skies, blowing Sahara desert sand and very strong Force 9 winds” this weekend, while Maltese language weather site It-Temp Madwarna corroborates this, adding high humidity levels to the list.

Here’s hoping things change as the week progresses… we’ve become accustomed to bad weather for Good Friday, but a gloomy Easter Sunday too? Surely, that can’t be allowed!
