Weather in Cala dOr
Situated on the east coast of Majorca, Cala d'Or is a hugely popular beach destination. Majorca is a popular holiday island in Spain's Balearic Islands. Although it gets rather crowded in summer, this is one of more low-key towns in the area, especially when comparing it to the rowdy and loud party cities of, for example, Magaluf and Palma. Cala d'Or has a typical Mediterranean climate that is characterised by warm and long summers and mild and wet winters. The warm sea water surrounding the island influences this climate—they are especially useful for keeping the winters mild.
The wettest time of the year is late autumn and early winter. November is the wettest month on average with 95mm of rain. Over the year, Cala d'Or sees 500mm of rain on average. Around three quarters of this falls between September and February. The other 6 months of the year see much less rainfall, especially the summer months in which rain is rare. The east coast of Majorca, on which Cala d'Or is situated, enjoys some of the warmest and driest weather on the island. This is due to the shelter afforded by the inland mountains.
The sea surrounding Cala d'Or is warm year round, a principle reason for the mild winters. The surface temperature of the sea varies between 14°C in winter and 25°C in summer. The Mediterranean Sea is comfortable to swim in from May to late autumn. Air temperatures are delightfully warm from June through October.

The two hottest months are July and August, the two peak tourist month with daily highs averaging 29°C and 30°C respectively and daily lows ranging around 18°C to 19°C. Even these nighttime temperatures are warm in the resort this time of year. June and September are only slightly cooler. The sea temperature is very comfortable in summer, averaging between 21°C and 25°C.
On the hottest of summer days, the afternoon temperatures can climb into the mid-30s and sometimes even higher. Luckily, sea breezes usually offer respite from the hottest days and cool off the resort, its beaches and its visitors. These winds are known as the Embat.
There is a lot of sunshine is summer, with the resort averaging up to 11 hours of sunshine per day in mid-summer (July) and 10 hours during the other main summer months (June and August), while September has 8 hours of sunshine per day.
July is by the driest month of the year, not receiving more than 9mm of precipitation in total, which is spread out over 3 days with rainfall. June and August are the respective second and third driest months. September with its 50mm in total is much wetter and effectively kicks off the wetter
Autumn, together with spring, is arguably the best time to visit Cala d'Or as the weather is still great but it's much less crowded than summer. This short season runs from October through November and is characterised by decreasing temperatures, increasing rainfall and fewer sunshine hours. If that seems a bit daunting, you should that all these factors are relative—the weather is still quite brilliant in autumn.
The average temperature is 19°C in October and 14°C in November. The afternoon high temperatures drop from 23°C to 18°C in the course of the season, while the nighttime lows fall from 13°C to 8°C. The sea temperature also decreases, but conditions may often still be good enough for swimming in autumn.
October is the second wettest month of the year, receiving 63mm of rainfall in total. November is the absolute number one wettest month, though, receiving 95mm, which is spread out over 13 days with rainfall. As such a (relatively) wet season, autumn is also much less sunny than summer. The number of sunshine hours per day ranges between 5 and 6 hours.
The winter months are mild in Cala d'Or: the average temperature is 9°C or 10°C in the three winter months of December, January and February. Nighttime lows can drop to around 4°C in the coldest nights, but during the day the mercury can still rise to a pleasant 15°C. Swimming is definitely out of the question now, the Mediterranean Sea averaging a chilly temperature of 14°C to 16°C.
After autumn, winter is the wettest month of the year. Between December and February, the total amount of precipitation per month ranges from 49mm to 58mm, which isn't all that much when compared to the weather in, say, the United Kingdom. Each month has 13 to 15 days with some kind of precipitation.
A season characterised by short days and enough rainfall is, logically, also not very sunny. Winter days have 5 to 6 hours of sunshine on average.
Spring enjoys weather that slowly warms up, gets sunnier and gradually drier. From March through May, the average temperature rises from 12°C to 17°C. The season starts off with cool nights of 5°C on average, but finishes with nighttime temperatures of 12°C. The afternoons warm up as well, from 17°C to 23°C. The sea temperature, however, remains rather cool all throughout the season, averaging 14°C to 17°C.
After the wetter half of the year, autumn and winter, spring sees the skies become gradually clearer and rainfall decrease. March is already much drier than any of the winter months, receiving 35mm of precipitation over 13 days with rainfall. April continues the trend and gets 30mm over 11 days. May is the driest month of the spring season, receiving 26mm of precipitation in the course of 9 days. May is, in fact, the fourth driest month of the year, after the three following summer months.
Less rainfall is due to falling cloud cover percentages, which in its turn means that there will be more sunshine. And indeed, daily average sunshine hours climb from 6 in the beginning of spring to 9 at the end.
