CHRISTMAS WEEKEND WEATHER WATCH
The most wonderful time of the year is set to bring with it rather wonderful weather, as mostly clear skies with dry conditions will enable incoming travellers and locals alike to soak up the festive atmosphere around the Maltese islands without any inclement weather threatening to dampen the Christmas spirit.
Settled and stable weather is forecast from Christmas Eve through to Boxing Day, as an area of high-pressure hovers over the Mediterranean. The 24th of December will start off the weekend with mainly cloudy skies, and force 2 to 3 winds blowing from a Southeast direction becoming South later in the day.
While partly cloudy skies will linger through the 25th of December before they clear the following day, winds will strengthen across the islands on Christmas morning, as South-Southwest winds are forecast to reach force 4 to 5 throughout the day. Boxing Day will see the wind decrease gradually to force 4 by the end of the day.
Boxing Day will bring a predicted maximum temperature of 19°C, while temperatures are not expected to exceed 17°C and 18°C on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, respectively. With a low of 14°C, Friday is expected to be the coolest day, as a minimum temperature of 15°C is forecast for both Saturday and Sunday.
