Maltese Weather in Autumn

Maltese weather guarantees a worry-free holiday at any time of year thanks to its warm summers and mild winters. In Malta, the temperature averages at 23-degree Celsius throughout the year but meteorologists have recorded temperatures which have topped 40-degrees Celsius as well as dropped to under 1-degree Celsius, in the past.

Maltese weather features an average of 90 precipitation days and over 300 days of sunshine per year. For this reason, most visitors would say that Malta only lives through two seasons, really and truly - summer and winter.

So what can you expect if you’re visiting Malta in the autumnal months? The temperature averages at 21-degrees Celsius across the months of October, November and December. If you’re accustomed to the wet British climate, you might get some relief when visiting Malta in autumn as, even throughout the wettest season, the island sees much less rain than others countries. In fact, autumn features an average of just 35 days of rainfall.

Throughout autumn, the Maltese enjoy around 10 hours of sunshine with the sun typically rising at 06:30 and setting at 17:00. This makes for plenty of time to enjoy the island during your stay. Seeing as the climate is cooler over the months of autumn, we recommend you take the opportunity to watch the sunset over the most stunning location Malta has on offer.

So what should you pack to avoid the Maltese weather from catching you off-guard? First things first -

We’ve got one word for you - layers! The weather in autumn is unpredictable. While temperatures won’t be too high, it will still be relatively warm and humid. For this reason, we recommend you wear light clothing items and throw a cardigan on top of everything.

While the above tip will ensure you’re dressed for the weather, the most important advice we can give you is to always carry and umbrella or raincoat with you! While, rain showers aren’t too frequent, you don’t want to be caught unprepared should the weather turn sour. We also recommend you wear comfortable sneakers. We understand wedges might look best in Instagram shots but the Maltese terrain can be quite rough, especially when exploring more traditional sites.
