It’s been blowing a gale all night long in Mallorca and now the State Meteorological Agency has issued an orange weather alert for gusts of 90 kilometers in the flatlands and more than 110 kilometers an hour in the Serra de Tramuntana.
A yellow weather warning has also been issued for heavy rain, thunderstorms and hailstones and Aemet says temperatures will plummet.
Extreme caution is advised in coastal areas because stormy seas are slamming huge waves into the shore.
Vent, vent i VENT. Fins a mitjan capvespre bufarà de ponent at cops forts arreu de les Balears. Malgrat les clarianes pot fer qualque ruixat fins a migdia. More sun però more fred el capvespre. pic.twitter.com/k3Qp8tibOE
