Chance of rain – NIL
Intense rain and thunderstorms are expected to affect Northern Italy and Eastern Europe during the next few days, however there is no risk that this system moves towards us as a high pressure system is holding a tight grip over the central Mediterranean. Thus the next 3 days, Friday 19th and the weekend are expected to be clear and with abundant sunshine
The map below shows temperature projections over the Maltese islands for Friday 19th, whilst temperatures for the next 3 days are expected to be slightly above average for this period, they will certainly feel comfortable and are nothing in comparison to what we experienced a week ago.
Temperatures on Friday are expected to reach a high of 26C, on Saturday 27C, whilst on Sunday 25C. At night the temperature will go down to 16/17 degrees Celsius.
Wind intensity is expected to increase during the weekend. The map below shows projections for next Sunday afternoon as the West North West will peak in intensity in the afternoon at up to Force 5 / 6 with brief wind gusts of up to F 7 for brief periods.
Friday 19th May : South South East Force 3
Saturday 20th May : West North West Force 3 /4 later F 4 / 5
