Cool Tuesday, Rainy Thursday Forecasted This Week

Despite the still rampant heat all across the Maltese islands, it seems as if the first signs of it dimming down are already among us given the forecasts for this upcoming week.

According to various weather reports, the first few days of this week, starting Monday 28th August, are set to bring strong winds. This was confirmed by the Malta International Airport’s weather forecast’s release of a wind warning, stating that:

The northwesterly wind will be strong, at times locally very strong over the exposed areas of the Maltese islands. 

Further down the line, a rainy forecast is being predicted for Thursday 31st August, to finish off the month with an arguably very much needed weatherly refreshment.

However, this doesn’t mean that there’s no more sun and heat for the rest of the upcoming weeks ahead. According to weather page ‘Aġġornament tat-temp’, there are still plenty of scorching temperatures awaiting us before we fully abandon our summer vibes.
