Climate and average weather in Malta
Malta's weather and climate are strongly influenced by the sea and have a very characteristic Mediterranean flavour, similar to that found in southern Italy or southern Greece.
The climate is typically Mediterranean, with hot, dry summers, warm and sporadically wet autumns, and short, cool winters with adequate rainfall. Nearly three-fourths of the total annual rainfall of about 600 millimetres (24 inches) falls between October and March; June, July, and August are normally quite dry. Winters are mild with only rare occurrences of cold weather brought by north and northeast winds from central Europe. In fact, daytime winter temperatures almost never fall below 10ºC (50ºF), while night-time winter temperatures never fall below 0ºC (32ºF).
June is an excellent time of year to come as the summer season is just getting into full swing and it is not too hot. July through to September are the peak summer months, the temperature on average is about 30ºC/86ºF. August is the hottest of these months, the temperature soars to above 40ºC/104ºF and this is the busiest time of the year.
