We may well have had the first snow fall of the Autumn a few weeks ago, but there are going to be no more snow flakes falling just yet.
Palma.—The Met. office forecast mild and sunny weather for Christmas yesterday due to a powerful and large anticyclone which will hang over the country for the next week or even longer.
The anticyclone is coming off the Azores and, while in some areas may cause a lot of early morning fog, it will mean that the chances of a white Christmas in the Balearics are very slim.
What is more, the chance of rain between 21 and 26 December is extremely unlikely.
But, on 27 and 28 December a new Atlantic front will begin to sweep across the north of the county, pushing the anticyclone away and between 29 December and 11 January, the Atlantic front could bring some rain to the north west of the country.
The Met. offices’s Ana Casals also said yesterday that this winter, which officially begins just after midnight on 22 December, is going to be much warmer than usual.
