Making the most of the warm December weather in Mallorca. | Majorca Daily Bulletin reporter


While Storm Fergus continues to batter parts of the UK, Mallorca is basking in glorious mid-December sunshine with highs of 24ºC.

Mallorca’s “December Indian Summer” has broken a number of maximum temperatures according to the delegate and spokesperson of the Balearic delegation of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), María José Guerrero.

Maximum temperatures were close to 24º on Sunday, well above the norm of 16º for this time of year.
On Sunday the highest maximum for December since records began was recorded in Campos, where the temperature reached 23.6º; the previous highest was 23º last year.

There was also a record high in Sa Pobla, where the temperature reached 23.5º; the previous record was 23.3º in 2022.
In Binissalem it reached 23.1º; the highest maximum was 22.9º, also last year.
The highest temperature was 23.8º in Pollensa.

And, for Tuesday a further slight rise in temperatures is expected and maximum temperatures will range between 20º and 25º.

The Balearics delegation of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) has reported that over the next few days “very warm temperatures for this time of year are expected across the island, with maximum temperatures that may exceed 24º”.
This will be about 10º more than normal for the beginning of December, which is 15º.

However, Aemet has forecast that from Wednesday afternoon or Thursday a cold front will creep across the island bringing rain and cause a notable drop in temperatures of around 10ºC.

The week has started with glorious sun shine and on Tuesday the weather is expected to be very similar: Predominantly partly cloudy with intervals of high clouds, mist and the possibility of some fog in the morning. Temperatures will remain the same and the wind will be light to moderate from the southwest.

But, on Wednesday afternoon or Thursday there will be a radical change in the weather due to the arrival of a cold front.
The forecast for December 13th is for light rain, mist and the possibility of fog.
Temperatures may start to drop.

The wind will be light to moderate westerly. The change will be more noticeable on Thursday, when daytime temperatures will struggle to breach 13º-17º and more rain is on the cards.
