Yesterday, the island was affected by some considerable wind gusts. No Caps de fibló, just ordinary stormy winds or gales. Wind speeds of up to 90 km/h were reported in some places. In the Tramuntana mountain range, gales even reached 100 km/h, together with more heavy rains. Some ferry services between Mallorca and Menorca and between Ibiza and Formentera had to be cancelled, whereas air traffic has not been interrupted, so far. For today, wind conditions should be less severe, or so we are told. The weather alert remains at Level Yellow, though. Tomorrow should be back to normal, wind and weather wise.
A weather vane like the nice one shown here will give you an indication as to where the wind blows from, today or any day.
