Weather Overview for Santa Ponsa
Santa Ponsa enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with long hot summers and mild winters. The warm surrounding seas help moderate this climate. This is especially noticeable in the mild winters. Santa Ponsa enjoys more than 300hrs of sunshine a only 400mm of rain a year. The climate has helped make the island very popular with European tourists.
The sea surrounding Santa Ponsa is warm year round; the principal reason for the mild winters. The sea temperature varies between 14ºC in winter and 26ºC in summer, and it is generally comfortable for swimming from late May to late mid November.
Summer is when people flock to Santa Ponsa. The weather is typically hot and dry with plentiful sunshine. The main summer months of June, July and August receive just 10% of the annual rainfall. July and August are the hottest months of the year and see daily highs above 30ºC. The great summer weather starts in late May and lasts through until September.
Summer temperatures can sometimes get very high - up into the mid 30s and even beyond. Thankfully the coastal location allows for relief from cooling sea breezes on the hottest days. The Embat is a well known local wind that brings cooler sea air. It is caused when hot air rises up from Majorca’s mountains and draws in the cooler sea air in its place. It is very welcome on the hottest days.
Sunshine is abundant in summer and its great beach weather on the island. Santa Ponsa enjoys up to 11 hours of sunshine per day in mid-summer.
The winters are mild in Santa Ponsa and see average temperatures around 9ºC to 10ºC. Lows may drop to 4ºC at night but daytime highs are frequently in the mid teens and you’ll enjoy 5 hours of sunshine per day on average.
As for rainfall, showers do occur but at around 40mm a month on average the actual rainfall level is not particularly high. You may get some wet and windy weather in winter but is normally short-lived.
In general, winter sees a lot of good weather with plenty of sunshine and comfortable daytime temperatures. You’ll get rain but not a lot, and cold temperatures are rare.
These two seasons enjoy some great weather and if you factor in the fewer visitors and cheaper prices they can arguably be the best time to visit. Of the two seasons autumn is slightly warmer, but spring is drier. In fact spring sees the driest weather of the year and autumn the wettest (although it’s never that wet).
Early autumn enjoys high temperatures; summer heat effectively remains until late October. Daily highs average in the upper 20s in September and in the low 20s in October. November does start to get a little chillier and can see single figure temperatures at night, although daily highs are still up towards 20ºC.
Autumn is the wettest time and can see more than 60mm a month on average. This is still relatively low and that’s reflected by the fact that the days still average 6 or 7 hours of sunshine.
In spring March is still cool at night and in the early morning but the daytime temperature quickly increases. By April, temperatures can be up to 20ºC in the day, and May can see highs in the mid 20s. Spring is dry with plenty of sunshine – averaging 9hrs per day in April and May.
