This week’s rain will make temperatures ‘more uncomfortable’, Maltese weather page warns
Local weather page sets the record straight.
In a Facebook post earlier this morning, local weather page Maltese Islands Weather sought to clear some misconceptions surrounding the rumoured upcoming rain showers this week.
They explain that although the showers ‘could be moderate to heavy at times’, they will be isolated rather than widespread – with most localities ‘[remaining] bone dry’.
The weather won’t be sunny or overcast all day but rather a mix of the two throughout the day.
Unfortunately, despite the air possibly feeling ‘briefly cool during a shower’, it will remain ‘hot and humid’ as usual.
In fact, the sunshine will evaporate ‘[any] rain that falls’ – making it uncomfortably humid.
They conclude their post by stating that the meteorological instability ‘does NOT mean that summer is coming to an end’, and that the usual summer weather will return following the Feast of Santa Marija on the 15th.
The speculation surrounding the possible rainfall dates back to last week, and yesterday’s post from Maltese Islands Weather explained that this is due to an impending anticyclone travelling across Europe. Bad weather tends to arrive during Santa Marija week – known as l-għarejjex ta’ Santa Marija, so the locals have come to expect it every year.
