Malta Winter Weather 2015 / 2016 Infographic

People swimming in Malta in March.
VN:F [1.9.22_1171]
Rating: 5.0/5 (2 votes cast)

Happy Spring everyone! Here in Malta it feels like we haven’t even had winter! Some people have even started swimming in the sea already.

Malta is, of course, famous for having one of the most pleasant climates in Europe with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year, warm weather and low levels of precipitation. However, this winter the weather has been so exceptionally warm, dry and sunny that we decided to make an infographic about it. We asked Malta Airport Met Office for the December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016 information on:

  • the total hours of sunshine per month
  • the number of sunny days per month
  • the average hours of sunshine per day
  • the average daily high temperature for each month
  • the total amount of rainfall for each month (February 2016 only had 2.6mm of rain) 

They also told us that the highest temperature of the winter was 23.6°C on the 15th of February 2016. (I got sunburn the day before!)

Now we’re looking forward to enjoying the rest of the gorgeous Spring weather, a long hot summer and a balmy Autumn! Then hopefully next winter will be even nicer than the which has just ended :)

MALTA WINTER WEATHER 2015/16. Total hours of sunshine: December – 198 hours, January – 211 hours, February – 196 hours. Number of sunny days: December – 19 days, January – 20 days, February – 16 days. December 2015, January 2016 and February 2016 all had more hours of bright sunshine than the norm! Average hours of sunshine per day: December - 6.4 hours, January – 6.8 hours, February – 6.8 hours. Average daily high temperature: December – 17.8°C, January – 16.9°C, February – 18.6°C. The highest air temperature over the whole winter was 23.6°C on 15th February 2016. Total rainfall per month: December – 45.8mm, January – 28.2mm, February – 2.6mm. Infographic by Maltalingua School of English – www.maltalingua.com.
