Weather In Malta In September

Even though this month is very warm dry and sunny a bad storm could be with us but mostly fantastic hot weather.

In general around eight days during September is generally thundery with moderate downpour. Everyone in Malta is glad to have the first rain after the heat of the last three months.

The temperatures are still strong enough to let you swim. The sea temperature is slightly less than that in August but still warm enough for swimming although the temperatures of the air starts dropping.

Everyone is still at the beach. But as the weeks pass the Maltese tend to decrease their beach visits.

Palaces and houses at Mdina Malta.

Schools start last days of September and latest beginning October. By the end of the month the beaches are empty of locals but not of tourists.

Daylight average of 9 hours, early sunrise and late sunset days start getting shorter although you will not notice, but sunset is earlier. By 21:00 at night it will be almost dark.

On the other hand it is a relief that temperatures drop from the last months. At this time of the year it gets a bit more humid as the seasons start to change.
