A satellite image showing the snow on Mallorca.


Mallorca is on red alert for cold weather as the temperatures reached -3 degrees Centigrade overnight. The coldest place on the island was -3.3 degrees in Escorca, -2.4 degrees Centigrade in Campos and -1.7 degrees in Lluc.

A photograph taken by NASA from space clearly shows the snow which has fallen on the island over recent days. There were reports this morning of a new cold front moving in which could mean that temperatures on the island fall even lower.

The cold temperatures are expected to continue.
