"Weather map showing the rain front which has moved in..."


"Good news, probable rain until the first week of June...." says a tweet from the Palma Met Office this morning. For an island facing water shortages this summer it is indeed good news but sun worshippers hoping for an early start to the summer might think differently.

The Palma Met Office said that a "rain front" would remain over Spain and the Balearics for at least two weeks. So far the weather in May has been unsettled with rain and high winds. It is in stark contrast to the weather in April when the island welcomed sunshine.

However, the Met Office does say that the weather in summer will be hotter than usual.
