A NEW cold front is expected throughout Spain and the Balearic Islands tomorrow bringing with it more snow and cold temperatures. On the brighter side, it should be the end to the bad weather which has been plaguing Spain and the Balearic Islands in the last couple of months.
Temperatures started to rise yesterday in Spain and will carry on increasing throughout the weekend before this cold front strikes, said the Manager of the National Met Office, Angel Rivera.
The cold front will come from the North, and will affect the whole of Spain down to the south and the islands. It will bring bitterly cold northwesterly winds.
These winds will not be as strong and dangerous as those that have been blowing in Spain and the Balearic Islands in the last couple of days, which caused wide-spread damage to buildings and regions.
Snow will fall in those regions that are over 300 metres high. Northern towns will be worst hit by the snow.
Usually Spain and the Balearic Islands have stormy and rainy fronts during this season that originate from the West in the Atlantic, and because this cold front is coming from the North it will bring the uncharacteristic cold winds, he added.
However, there is good news on the weather front as this new cold front will provoke a change in atmospheric conditions that have been hanging around Spain and will bring the storms and rain from next weekend. These rains will also bring warmer temperatures.
The National Met Office is forecasting a cloudy Saturday in Minorca.
Temperatures during the night will decrease slightly but will be stable and moderate.
There will be frost in the central regions of Majorca and Ibiza. There will be moderately northerly winds which will change to a westerly direction during the day.
