It's not going to be as cold as expected this December in Mallorca. | Majorca Daily Bulletin reporter


The long weekend in December, starting on the 6th, will see temperatures between 1ºC and 3ºC above the climatic average in the south of Spain, as well as in the Canary Islands and in areas of the northwest, according to the forecast the expert of Meteored (, Samuel Biener.

Furthermore, adverse weather will be less significant in central, northeastern and Balearic areas so, according to the expert, it will not be excessively cold in a large part of Spain, despite the fact that the polar and arctic air will bring colder than normal temperatures to a large part of the European continent, which much of Spain will escape.

Rainfall will be scarcer than usual on the southeast coast, in the Balearics and in a large part of the Canary Islands, a situation that has been repeated in recent weeks with the circulation of westerly fronts.

So, it does not appear that the weather will be so bad after all, certainly not as bad as in the UK where the Met Office has warned that people should get ready for potentially “hazardous conditions” this evening and overnight into Wednesday morning.

Central and south west Scotland, north east England and Yorkshire are some of the affected regions.
London and areas of south east England could see snow on Thursday, forecasters say.
