After one of the coldest Christmas' on record the sun was back yesterday.

After a white Christmas...a blue Boxing Day. The sun which had been absent for much of the past week made a re-appearance yesterday prompting people to head for the beach. Although it wasn't swimming weather and those hardy beach people were well insulated against the cold the rays were a welcome sight. It has been one of the coldest Christmasses on record and the electricity company GESA has reported a surge in demand for power. Many bars and restaurants have reported a drop in takings with the cold weather and the economic downturn being blamed. The few Christmas holidaymakers have not been impressed by the weather either. The Canary Islands has once again been one of the top destinations in Spain to visit largely because of its fine climate. Thousands of people celebrated Christmas by the sea-side in temperatures close to the 30 degrees Centigrade mark. The weather outlook in the Balearics is looking good. The winter warm spell looks set to continue and although the Met Office is not promising a heat wave things are going to get hotter and the New Year could be a warm one.
