As temperatures dipped last night the Palma Met Office forecast that snow could fall in mountains areas early this morning. The odds on a white Christmas were slashed as the Met Office said that the island could look forward to some very cold weather over the next few weeks. The Met Office also forecast winds of up to 80 kilometres an hour for today. Civil Defence was on alert last night. The sudden drop in temperatures resulted yesterday in a surge in demand for electricity. The weather this year has been unusual to say the least. August has gone into the history books as one of the wettest on record. The poor weather during the summer months was one of the reasons cited for the drop in the number of visitors this year. On a more brighter note, there is no shortage of water this winter. Island reservoirs are almost overflowing and at one stage there were fears that they may actually overflow.
