The map above shows thick clouds over the Western Mediterranean area. These clouds are expected to move eastwards and will pass over us for a brief period on Thursday, however by then most will have dissipated and therefore we expect this week to be mostly with clear skies and abundant sunshine, contrary to the past few days which saw dull skies mostly due to the sand which reached over our territory from the Sahara desert.

The map below shows rain precipitation levels projected for tomorrow Wednesday 17th. Clearly indicating that the Ionian sea towards our North East and parts of Sicily will receive lots of rain, however it is evident that no rain will be reaching the Maltese islands.
