The Malta Independent on Sunday - - NEWS -

The last few days of the year will be dry and sunny, ac­cord­ing to Malta In­ter­na­tional Air­port’s Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Of­fice.

To­day is ex­pected to be mostly sunny, with tem­per­a­tures reach­ing 16°C and fall­ing to a rather chilly 7°C. Through­out the week­end, a light to mod­er­ate wind is ex­pected to blow, start­ing from a north­west di­rec­tion to­day and be­com­ing west-north­west on Sun­day.

Winds are ex­pected to be­come grad­u­ally stronger as the year draws to a close, with the mod­er­ate north-north­west wind blow­ing on New Year’s Eve be­com­ing a strong north-north­east wind on New Year’s Day.

While the Me­te­o­ro­log­i­cal Of­fice is fore­cast­ing a sun­nier and drier than av­er­age New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, tem­per­a­tures are ex­pected to fall from a max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture of 17°C to a min­i­mum of 7°C.

31 De­cem­ber 2014 re­mains un­beaten as the cold­est New Year’s Eve on record, with tem­per­a­tures hav­ing plum­meted to 2.1°C, ac­com­pa­nied by some snow.
