The first Heatwave for this year is expected to hit Malta this week!
The Malta weather forecast is expecting temperatures to hit between 30°C to 35°C with a UV 9!
The public is encouraged to stay hydrated and in the shade, while the poor horses carrying carriages will still be operating as normal, since legislation to rest in the afternoon comes into effect in July!
ELI/SL/439.22: No ‘karozzin’ may be used on any road throughout the period from the 1st of July to the 31st of August any year between 13:00 hours and 16:00 hours
Considering our hot climate the law should extend this period to protect these working animals from June to September between 12:00pm to 5:00pm.
