1) This cloud forecast, a first at least for the Maltese Islands, is different from other weather forecasts because its main purpose is to inform people in advance regarding the type/s of clouds that should be expected on the afforementioned day unless stated otherwise. will not be held responsabile in any way for misuse of data. In no way, does this page intend to provide a weather forecast or compete with existing or future weather forecast providers.

2) "Cloud-type forecast" has an accuracy rate of almost 70% translating into a high degree of accuracy in meteorology! The accuracy rate was found by noting the forecasted and actual cloud-type and cover in an excel sheet. The actual cloud data was obtained from maltairport (Malta's official Meteorological Office) and weatheronline websites and through personal weather observation from time to time during the day. An interpretation of result and the result itself (for the previous rainy season) can be found by clicking here

3) An observer might not see all the clouds present in the sky. For example if on a particular day there is both Cirrus and Stratus clouds, the observer would not be able to see the higher level clouds due to obstruction from clouds below that layer. In such cases, the forecast would still be deemed as accurate! As from January 2011, weather watches and warnings are being included in the forecast.

4) This page is updated at least once daily. For the very latest forecast kindly click on the "Refresh" button of your browser.

Any feedback about this service, whether you find it accurate enough and where I can improve on it will be deeply appreciated!
