The frigid temperatures, rough seas and 100 kilometre an hour winds recorded in Puig d'Alfàbia, and the Serra de Tramuntana that Storm Bella brought to Mallorca on Monday have subsided, for now.

Tuesday started off with winds gusting up to 60 kilometres an hour in some places, but scattered showers and hailstones are forecast in the afternoon, there will be snow above 1,100 metres and the mercury will hover between 13 and 15 degrees.

Storm Bella damage in Andratx.

A massive cleanup operation is underway in Puerto Andratx after waves pounded the shoreline damaging the promenade and street furniture.

High waves also battered the lighthouse in Colònia de Sant Jordi.
