Grab your umbrella, it is going to be a wash-out week for Mallorca. The Palma Met Office (AEMET) is forecasting rain for much of the week. The only bright spot is Sunday when cloudy skies but some sun are being forecast. Rain is common at this time of the year on Mallorca, infact there is a name for it, Gota Fria or the Cold Drop.

The good news is that temperatures will remain high reaching 30 degrees Centigrade. The Met Office said that storms could hit the island from tomorrow, lasting until the weekend. After one of the hottest summers on record it appears that September will be remembered for the rain.

The unsettled weather could mark the end of the peak holiday season and the cloudy skies will certainly dent the sale of last-minute holidays.
