Daily maximum temperatures

The highest daytime temperatures in Cyprus are reached in August with an average of 33.7 °C. The coldest month, on the other hand, is January, with an average of just 17.4 °C. In Malta, July is the warmest month, with 32.0 °C. There, it is coolest in February with an average of 15.6 °C.

Night time lows

At night, it cools down to varying degrees depending on the country and altitude. In Cyprus, temperatures drop as low as 7.8 °C in January. The warmest nights are in August at 23.4 °C. In Malta, it is coolest at night in February at 9.6 °C and warmest in August at 23.3 °C. This corresponds to a cooling of 9.3 to 11.3 °C in Cyprus and 5.3 to 9.5 °C in Malta.

Rain days per month

By definition, a rain day is a day on which at least 0.1 liters of precipitation per m² fall. This corresponds to a 1 square meter puddle in which the water stands 0.1 mm high — insofar as the water does not seep away or evaporate. So it does not have to rain all day long. January brings the most rainy days (9.0) in Cyprus. With an average of only zero days, July is the friendliest. In Malta, it rains most often in January with 10.7 days.

Precipitation amount per day

Depending on the season and the location of a country, the wind brings a varying amount of water with it. As a rule, the water evaporating in the oceans is absorbed and then transported inland. The greatest amount of rain (hail or dew are also forms of precipitation) in Cyprus occurs in December, when about 3.3 liters per square meter fall per day. In Malta, the average amount of precipitation ranges from zero liters per day in July to 3.1 in November. However, these are average values. If you consider that there are only 9.6 rainy days in Malta in November, each of them accounts for about 9.6 liters.

Sunshine hours per day

With 3,285 hours of sunshine per year, Cyprus is in the lead. The most hours of sunshine (12.6 per day) are in July. Malta falls into second place with only 2,993 hours. There the sun is visible in December for only 5.4 hours per day, so not hidden behind clouds.

Hours of daylight

The length of a day varies throughout the year and depends on the distance from the equator. In December, the day in Cyprus is only 9.9 hours long. In June, on the other hand, it is 14.5 hours. In Malta, it is 9.8 hours in December and 14.6 in June.
