Rainfall in Malta

What is important about the winter rain is that  the rain tends to be far heavier but for far shorter periods than in the UK and with sunshine rather than clouds after the rain. On average at the worst in mid winter more than half the days are sunny.

Malta's rainfall is heavier than that in London in Winter but far dryer in Summer with very little rain from April through to August.  To generalise the rain starts in the second / third week in September and changes to dryer weather in the third week in March.

 

Unlike Cyprus where snow falls in the Troodos mountains, Malta never has any snow falls because of it's mild winter climate.

 

Temperature & Sunshine in Malta

You can expect it to be warmer and sunnier than the UK throughout the year. April, May and June are a nice time for very pleasant weather, good for sunbathing and not too hot when walking around the tourist sites, shopping, and just strolling around. Another benefit the country side is still green from the winter rain for most of the earlier part of this period. July & August the country side tends to become scorched and the heat is slightly above the pleasant range, time to be around your hotel pool, or on a beach in the early afternoon. The first 2 weeks in September have a pleasant temperature after this you can expect some rain . A popular vacation destination to avoid the British winter, and because this is low season so long term bargains can be found
