A 'Things to do in winter' thread :
So is this right?
May – September = hot with no rain and lots and lots of sun
October – December ? Some rain, a bit colder lots of sunshine?
January – April ? Colder (how cold is it?) damp but still lots of sunshine?
June – August = very very hot with no rain and lots and lots and lots of sun
September – still 32 degrees C average, but quite humid and some clouds – tiny tiny bit cooler evenings
October – weather starts to change but still around 24-27 degrees during the day, more chance of rain, more clouds, cooler evenings but lots and lots of sun and some days where the sun will still burn you easily. You can wear a long-sleeved jumper or even light jacket in the evening. You can still swim although there may be clouds and some wind. Sea temperature is around 23 -25 degrees C.
November – December : You can swim, but it looks like winter and the summer-atmosphere has gone (if you’re a local). It rains sometimes and there are clouds sometimes but it’s till around 17 -20 degrees C and there’s lots of sunshine. Can be lots of wind.
January – March : Gets down to around 12 degrees C in jan and feb, - too cold to swim, can be damp and windy but lots of bright clear sunshine. Once it was only 7 degrees C and everyone was very shocked and complaining. March starts to feel like winter’s ending as everyone knows it’s April soon, so all the locals join gyms.
April : heading back to spring – tourists are swimming, locals are wearing jackets, lots and lots of sunshine. Locals are seeing progress at the gym. It always tends to rain or be grey on Good Friday, and the sun generally comes out on Easter Sunday. (seriously!! – every year)
May – even the locals are starting to swim, and people are at the gym more as they want to look good on the beach which is in a month’s time. Local girls are travelling in groups to remote farmhouses in Gozo where they can lie around with 10 -15 friends in the sun near a pool working on their tan without anyone (males) ever having to see them looking at all pale on the beach J Lots of sunshine.
June: everyone’s out in force at the beach in their new shorts and flip-flops with a slight tan and hoping the gym has paid-off
