Earlier this week, this Winter’s first snow fell in Mallorca, along with snowy conditions in mainland Spain and freezing temperatures in most of northern Europe. Snow was reported here in the higher areas of the Serra de Tramuntana, above 600 m. Stormy winds caused some havoc there, along with high waves in the coastal areas.
Today, temperatures are expected to drop further in Mallorca and snow is predicted in the Tramuntana mountain range above 300 m. High winds are forecast and the AEMet meteorological office raised its alert to IG1 (Level 1) for today and tomorrow. Excursions to the higher mountain regions are not recommended.
Snow is forecast in Mallorca for Christmas only in the higher peaks of the Tramuntana range. With a bit of luck, there should be some sun elsewhere on the island tomorrow morning, and again on Boxing Day, with temperatures of 19 to 20° C.
