    Malta weather January

    What’s the weather like in Malta in January?

    Malta is a Mediterranean archipelago that sits between Sicily and the north coast of Africa, which is a location that gives the country some of Europe’s best weather. Temperatures are pleasant throughout the mild winter, although January’s one of the wettest months of the year; rainfall often comes in short, heavy bursts.

    Geographical influences

    The Mediterranean has a big impact on Malta’s climate, moderating conditions and keeping humidity down with cooling sea breezes. Malta is fairly exposed, meaning it’s relatively windy. With Africa and the Sahara Desert close by, the weather can get very hot on your Malta holidays when the sirocco wind arrives, although this is worse over summer. Malta is relatively flat with a highest point of just over 250m, so there’s not a lot of difference in weather across regions.

    Averages

    The average high temperature in Malta during January is 16ºC, and there will be the chance to catch some winter sun at the beach. You should pack some warmer clothes for the evenings though, as temperatures fall to around 9ºC at night. The average sea temperature’s 17ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 60% to the mid-90s. Average rainfall’s 95mm over the course of 12 days.

    Daylight

    During January you can expect 10 hours of daylight with 5 hours of sunshine each day. UV levels are low, while sunset’s around 5pm at the beginning of the month, gradually getting later.
