The cold wave that these days is affecting Europe has also come to the Balearic Islands, with minimum temperatures below 0º C in the mountains of Mallorca, where the altitude of snow has fallen to 300 meters, leaving a layer of snow about 10 centimetres thick at relatively low levels. Which it has caused new cuts on the roads, which should be added to the landslides caused the new year’s eve. In the rest of Mallorca and the other islands of the archipelago, it has rained and is expected that the current atmospheric instability will continue, at least until early next week. Although, from next Saturday, temperatures are expected to go up, moving away from their current values near or below 0° C. In Palma and the rest of Mallorca are expected minimum temperatures of about 6 to 8º C with a maximum up to 14º C, values similar to those of Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. In the villages and towns of the Serra de Tramuntana, is expected an oscillation in the thermometer between 2 and 10º C. For this reason, and the accumulated snow, the authorities have recommended to avoid trekking excursions during these days.
