What’s the weather like in Malta in February?
Malta enjoys some of Europe’s best weather because of its position in the Mediterranean between Sicily and the north coast of Africa. It has a mild winter and February brings warmer spring-like temperatures. The amount of rain that Malta gets reduces after the winter months, and if it does rain it's usually short downpours.
Breezes from the Mediterranean Sea keep things nice and cool and the humidity levels down, although Malta can be quite windy at times as it’s quite exposed. The hot sirocco wind can blow over from Africa occasionally too, which can push the temperatures up. As Malta is quite flat, it means the weather generally stays the same across the country.
The average high temperature in February is 16ºC, so there will be plenty of opportunities to relax on the beach if you book holidays to Malta during winter. Things can get a little chilly in the evenings so don’t forget to pack some warmer clothes. The average sea temperature’s at its annual low of 16ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 60% to the mid 90s. Average rainfall drops to 63mm across 12 rainy days.
During February you can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s around 5.30pm at the beginning of February, gradually getting later as the month goes on.
