Early blooming of almond trees, which has been occurring because of the mild winter, may now be problematic, as cold weather takes hold.
Winter temperatures are forecast to arrive in Majorca on Friday. The Aemet meteorological agency says that a cold front is on its way that will bring about a very significant change in the weather, which will see rain in general and snow on the mountains.
While today’s temperatures were slightly below the norm for the time of the year, tomorrow (Thursday) they are expected to reach 20 degrees, i.e. five degrees higher than is typical. On Friday, however, the temperature will be between ten to twelve degrees.
