The Malta Airport MetOffice confirmed that between Thursday night and Saturday, it is expected that there will be showers which could be locally thundery at times.
This weather is a result of a cold front associated with a depression over Italy and which will extend from the Adriatic Sea towards northeast Algeria on Thursday and which will move south-eastwards crossing the Maltese Islands overnight between Thursday and Friday.
This front, the MetOffice added, will bring rain-bearing clouds into the region together with cooler air making the atmosphere more unstable over a still relatively warm sea.
Furthermore the wind is expected to veer into a mainly Northwesterly direction and become rather strong to strong.
