Geography, Weather, & Wildlife of Malta
Malta is an island nation in the central part of the Mediterranean
Sea. Its closet neighbor is the island of Sicily (part of Italy)
to its north and about twice as far away to its west is Tunisia.
Geographically, Malta is just a couple flat islands as every
part of the small country is very close to the sea.
Malta has a relatively predictable weather pattern. Summers
are hot and dry with average highs of 88° F (31° C). The rest of the seasons are
more humid; winters get a lot of rain, but temperatures only fall to about 55° F
(12° C). Springs and falls (autumns) can also get rain as temperatures remain closer
to summer temperatures for most of these seasons. The most unpredictable aspect
of the weather is the winds, which can be fierce and may bring in humidity or temperature
changes rather quickly.
