MaltaWeather.com is a collaboration between Meteo Malta and the MaltaMedia Online Network. The website is updated regularly. Live readings are available constantly from various locations and all forecasts are updated three times a day. It first appeared online as the official website of the Balzan MaltaWeather Station offering Malta’s first 5-day weather forecast and real-time online weather reports.
Since 1987 all instruments at the Balzan location were British standard instruments. Maximum and minimum temperatures and rainfall were already being recorded on a daily basis at that time. As the months and years passed, more data could be measured with the purchase of other weather equipment. Along the years automatic weather equipment was bought until in 1998 Balzan Weather Station launched the first weather website from Malta, which in 2000 included the first 5-day weather forecast for Malta. Then in January 2001 MaltaWeather.com was launched as part of the MaltaMedia Online Network. In April 2001 an Oregon Scientific WMR-968 Wireless Weather Station was installed and soon after real-time weather data was included on MaltaWeather.com, again a first for Malta.In 2002, Balzan Malta Weather Station bought a professional automatic weather station. Today MaltaWeather.com also includes weather stations in Malta: Attard, Balzan, Iklin, Mellieha, Mgarr, Msida, Naxxar, Qormi, Rabat, Senglea, Zebbug, Zejtun and in Gozo: Nadur and Victoria, and rainfall reporting stations at Balzan, B’Bugia, Iklin, Attard, Bahar ic-Caghaq, Msida, Valletta, Zabbar, Zejtun, Marsaxlokk, Zurrieq, Rabat, Dingli, Bahrija, Mgarr (Malta), Mellieha, Vittoriosa, Siggiewi, Zebbug (Malta), Qormi, Paola, Luqa, Gudja, Qawra, Mosta, Naxxar, Marsalforn, Sannat, Gharb, Marsascala, San Gwann, Victoria, Nadur, Xaghra and Zebbug (Gozo).A few years ago MaltaWeather.com invested in a state-of-the-art lightning detector which can detect lightning strikes up to 500 km away and can give indication of any severe storms approaching the Maltese Islands.Meteo Malta provides daily weather reports and 5-day forecasts on its website, whilst also providing weather forecasts up to 9 months ahead, 14-day weather forecasts for Malta and the Mediterranean, as well as warnings by SMS for heavy rain, floods, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, large hail, damaging winds, dense fog and extreme heat.The following information is also available on request from Meteo Malta at reasonable rates:
