Hail and Thunder

On the weather front, let me tell you that I witnessed some beautiful cloud formations and a rather splendid sunset last night. Shortly after taking the above photo near Inca, I was surprised by a brief hail storm near Campanet with dark clouds on the horizon, accompanied by some thunderous rumblings in the distance. The mountains behind Inca on the way up from Caimari and over towards Pollença were still snow-capped.

For today, sunny spells are forecast for the first time since the cold winter weather started, when was it, ten days ago? Temperatures are said to increase ever so slightly as of today. The Yellow alert is reduced to some local areas in the south of the island for today and an all clear is envisaged for tomorrow. Snow, if any, will only fall above 500 m today, and subsequently above 700 m, 800 m, 900 m, and 1000 m, as from tomorrow. Siberia seems on the retreat.

The photo was taken near Inca, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 14th, 2012. The time was 17:45:34.
