Mallorca enjoys a Mediterranean climate, with hot, sunny summers, and mild winters.
The Tramuntana mountains that form the western coast of Mallorca have a major influence on the weather here. The mountains protect most of the island from the worst of the winter weather. This also means that many of the western towns and villages in the foothills have more rain that the interior and eastern parts of Mallorca and the west coast is slightly cloudier than the rest of the island. The pressure systems form clouds here when moisture from the sea rises up the mountains after being at sea level.
