The contrast between an intense low pressure system over the western Mediterranean and higher pressure to our east will create strong winds and rough seas over the Maltese Islands tomorrow and on Friday.
For the Maltese Islands, this means SSE to SE Force 7 winds at times (gusting Force 8 to 9) tomorrow Thursday with maximum significant wave heights of at least 5 metres from a SE direction and swells up to 4.0 metres high from an ESE direction..
This will definitely be dangerous for boats sailing or berthed along the coast at Delimara, Marsaxlokk, Birżebbuġa, Wied iż-Żurrieq, Għar Lapsi, St Thomas Bay and Marsascala. Any boats berthed there should be removed as soon as possible.
The weather will be fine today but becoming cloudy tomorrow with possible isolated rain showers. Any rain may also leave a deposit of Sahara Desert sand. Temperatures will go down to 12°C tonight and go up to 16°C to 17°C during the day tomorrow.
