Ferry services were disrupted, flights were delayed as icy temperatures and gale force winds battered Majorca yesterday. And there was even worse news yesterday. The Met Office forecast that today snow would fall above 500 metres. Yesterday small amounts of snow fell on the high peaks on the Tramuntana mountain range. Civil Defence remains on full alert and the fire brigade yesterday answered a series of weather related calls. The high winds, which hit the north of the island hard, left a trail of debris. Last night the island port authority says that the fishing fleet had remained in port. They also advised yacht people to do the same. The Met Office says that the island can look forward to two weeks of unsettled weather. They are not even ruling out the possibility of a white Christmas.
