According to the Malta International Airport Weather forecast, temperatures will see a dip from a scorching 39 degrees Celsius on Tuesday to 30 degrees Celsius by Saturday.
Despite still being quite hot, the temperatures will not be as brutal as they have been in the past couple of weeks. UV index will still be quite high at around UV 10, so caution is still advised.
The wind force is set to be light at Force 4 between Monday and Thursday, before increasing to a Force 6 or 7 starting Friday. The sea temperature is set to rank at an average of 24°C, which is 1°C higher than the seasonal average for the start of the month.
