For many of you today is probably the last day of work before finding courage to face the Gozo-Carnival queue tomorrow. In case you haven’t packed yet, we have asked the lovely people at Maltese Islands Weather about this weekend’s weather. (Thank us later!)
Following great news from Malta’s Met Office that January was the fifth driest since 1923 (!!), Maltese Islands Weather have told Bay that “the long stretch of dry weather is expected to last over Carnival and beyond,” adding that “this comes as latest maps continue to show an area of high pressure covering the central Mediterranean over the weekend.”
This will ensure a mix of clouds and sun on all five days.
Temperatures will also be stable on these days, with 16 C / 17 C highs and 10 C / 11 C lows. Wind will be light and variable on Friday 21/02 and Saturday 22/02. It will then be light to moderate from a predominantly West direction on all remaining days.
All in all, looks like Malta and Gozo are set for one great Carnival weekend!
