Unpredictable Weather Patterns

The weather forecast has been somewhat unpredictable of late, at least here in Mallorca. A week ago or so it seemed that we were heading for Summer but not surprisingly, high temperatures only lasted for a day or two. Yesterday it was back to long sleeves, clouds and some drizzle, when really we are supposed to be at the height of Springtime, by now.

The weather forecast promises 23° C for the Felanitx area for today and tomorrow (quite a bit less for other areas), but rain and showers for Friday (May 1st) with temperatures around 17° C. That’s not so nice for the people of Ses Salines who will have prepared for their traditional Fira del Primer de Maig, the folks in Caimari who are planning a pilgrimage up to the monastery in Lluc, and the pueblo of Costitx where everyone is busy preparing for Friday’s Fira de les flors (the annual flower show).

My gut feelings tell me that the Agencia Estatal de Meteorología may be just as erratic, capricious and unreliable in their weather forecast as the general weather pattern has been so far this year. Anything is possible, even the opposite of the prevailing predictions. I am planning to go to the Fira de les flors and I am not intending to bring my paraguas.

My photo shows an old and tired almond tree, desperately hanging on in there. The tree is probably one of the few Mallorcans who are happy about all the rain we’ve had over the last few months.
