    About the Climate in Mallorca

    Mallorca enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with hot, sunny summers, and mild winters. Find out what the weather is up to this week!

    Monthly temperatures

    The weather in Mallorca remains warm throughout the year with average night time lows dropping to around 10 ºC in December and January. The summer months can see temperatures reach 40 ºC, although the averages are around 30 ºC. With sunshine hours reaching double figures, sea temperatures in the mid-20 ºC's and barely any rainy days, it's no wonder that Mallorca is the perfect choice for a summer holiday. 

    WEATHER IN JANUARY
    Min. temperature: 8º C | Max. temperature: 15º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 5-6  | No. of rainy days: 5
    January is low season in Mallorca and so is actually a great time to visit if you enjoy the outdoors. At this time of the year, the temperatures in Mallorca are pleasant for exploring the countryside and for many of the sports available on the island. With the skies above being clear or partly cloudy for 80% of the month, it's the perfect time for road bikers to enjoy the quiet lanes and for hikers to get out in the mountains.

    WEATHER IN FEBRUARY
    Min. temperature: 9º C | Max. temperature: 16º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 6  | No. of rainy days: 5
    The temperatures slowly begin to rise and it's the time of year for the almond blossoms to make an appearance. Thousands of visitors come to Mallorca to see the white blossom - head to the foothills of the Tramuntana mountains to see the best examples.

    WEATHER IN MARCH
    Min. temperature: 10º C | Max. temperature: 17º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 6-7  | No. of rainy days: 4
    As the days become longer, the amount of sunshine increases and the temperatures can get over the 20º C mark making trips to the beach possible. Avoid swimming in the sea unless you have a wet suit - the average sea temperature at this time of year in Mallorca is only 14º C!

    WEATHER IN APRIL
    Min. temperature: 11º C | Max. temperature: 19º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 8  | No. of rainy days: 6
    Mallorca's weather in April is positively Spring-like. It tends to have a couple more rainy days (more likely at the beginning of the month) but the upside of this is that the countryside becomes very green and lush. Mallorca gets a bit busier now with the Easter holidays and you'll definitely be able to enjoy Mallorca's beach at this time of year (the beach clubs open round about now). Sea temperatures remain low at 15º C.

    WEATHER IN MAY
    Min. temperature: 15º C | Max. temperature: 22º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 9  | No. of rainy days: 4
    Warm evenings and sunny days make May a glorious time to visit Mallorca. The landscapes are green thanks to the Spring showers and the clear blue skies provide fabulous contrast if you like photography. It's still not high season yet, so you'll be able to get well-priced accommodation if you visit Mallorca in May.

    WEATHER IN JUNE
    Min. temperature: 18º C | Max. temperature: 26º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 10  | No. of rainy days: 2
    The start of the high season, June is when the island really starts to come alive. Hot days and warm nights, and finally the sea starts to warm up, reaching 21º C. Mallorca's nightclubs start to get busy and the live music venues begin their summer programmes. And you might still be able to get a place on your favourite beach before the school holidays begin.

    WEATHER IN JULY
    Min. temperature: 21º C | Max. temperature: 29º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 11  | No. of rainy days: 1
    July brings hot and dry weather, particularly in the interior of Mallorca. Perfect for sunbathing, a visit to the waterparks, and of course, the beach. Sea temperatures are a welcoming 24º C. It's the perfect summer holiday destination.

    WEATHER IN AUGUST
    Min. temperature: 22º C | Max. temperature: 30º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 10  | No. of rainy days: 1
    August tends to be the hottest month to visit Mallorca, the humidity also rises in August to 70%. Don't try climbing any mountains at this time unless you have sun block and litres of water. Much better to laze by the pool or on the beach where you'll benefit from the cooling sea breeze.

    WEATHER IN SEPTEMBER
    Min. temperature: 20º C | Max. temperature: 27º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 8  | No. of rainy days: 4
    The temperatures in Mallorca in September fall a touch to a more manageable average of 27º C, but the sea remains warm at 25º C. The beginning of September is definitely hotter than the end of September, and you may find there is more cloud cover and rainfall as the end of the month approaches. 

    WEATHER IN OCTOBER
    Min. temperature: 16º C | Max. temperature: 23º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 6-7  | No. of rainy days: 7
    It's time to get back to enjoying outdoor pursuits as the weather in Mallorca during October has temperatures at a very pleasant mid 20º C's. Be aware that the Tramuntana mountains can create their own micro-climate and you may find it's slightly cloudier and wetter here than in other parts of Mallorca. You can still enjoy the beach in October, so don't rule Mallorca out for the half term holiday week.

    WEATHER IN NOVEMBER
    Min. temperature: 12º C | Max. temperature: 19º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 5-6  | No. of rainy days: 6
    November in Mallorca begins to feel like the UK in May. You can expect the odd day to be over 22º C and the skies are clear or partly cloudy 80% of the month. So definitely still very pleasant. The sea temperature begins to fall now to 19º C and won't reach the heady heights of above 20º C until the following June.

    WEATHER IN DECEMBER
    Min. temperature: 10º C | Max. temperature: 17º C | Hrs of sunshine per day: 5  | No. of rainy days: 6
    December brings the shortest days of the year and the corresponding fall in daily sunshine hours. The days are still warm enough to being wearing T-shirts but you will need a light jacket for the evenings.

    Prevailing weather

    The Tramuntana mountains that form the western coast of Mallorca have a major influence on the weather. They protect most of the island from the worst of the winter weather, but of course, this means that many of the towns and villages in the foothills of the mountains suffer from more rain that the interior and eastern parts of Mallorca. They also mean that the west coast is less sunny than the rest of Mallorca. The pressure systems forms clouds here as the weather hits the mountains after being at sea level.

    Rainfall

    However, rainfall on the island remains slight, varying between 1,400mm (55in) in the mountains to only 300mm (11.8in) on the southern plain. The winds blow principally during the winter and spring, predominantly from the north (the Tramuntana) and the southwest (the Llebeix). The southeast Sirocco brings with it red sand from the deserts of Africa which, if nothing else, seriously irritates the island's clean-car owners.

    It is rare than snow falls anywhere except at the higher altitudes in the mountains during the winter.

    Sunshine hours

    Minimum daily sunshine hours also occur during the winter months when you can expect around 5 hours of sun every day. However this rises dramatically during the summer months and averages at around 11 hours sun a day.
