How warm is it in Malta during September?

The temperature is extremely stable in September with average highs of 26℃ and lows just 2℃ lower at 24℃. Of course, the high humidity will make it feel even hotter. The UV index will be high at this time of year, so protection against skin and eye damage is needed. Try to limit exposure between 10am and 4pm. Apply broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen every few hours, even if it's cloudy, or more frequently after sweating or swimming, and wear UV-blocking sunglasses too, and bear in mind that bright surfaces, such as sand and water increase UV exposure.

Does it rain in Malta during September?

On average, there will be 8 rainy days during the month, amounting to 24.6mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. Due to the high temperature and humidity, you might expect lots of thunderstorms, however they're actually fairly infrequent at this time of year. On average, September will see just 3 days that produce a storm.

How warm is the sea in Malta during September?

The water around Malta reaches a very pleasant 26℃ during September. This is very warm, and will feel bath-like. People who normally feel the cold will find this temperature perfectly acceptable. The hot air temperature will mean that you will feel comfortably warm when coming out of the water.
