Weather in Can Picafort
Can Picafort sits Alcudia Bay on Mallorca (Majorca), one of Spainâs Balearic Isles. The resort benefits year round from a Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and mild winters. The Balearics in general are drier than other areas of coastal Spain, receiving low levels of rainfall even in the winter. Alcudia is the main tourist area on the island and the tourist season lasts year round, obviously peaking during the summer months.
Summer, from June till September, is hot, sunny and dry. The average high temperature rises from an already hot 25Â°C in June, to a peak of 29Â°C in July and August, cooling off slightly in September to 27Â°C. It can often get up into the low 30s and while the heat is usually tempered by a sea breeze, it can get uncomfortable. Night time average lows stay up near 20Â°C for the season and it can often be very hot. While this allows for typically Mediterranean outdoor dinners late into the night and a minimal wardrobe, it can also make sleeping difficult if your fan or air-conditioning is not up to standard. June is the sunniest month seeing eleven hours of sunshine per day. Rain is almost unheard of. The crowds thicken and it might be more advisbale to visit in early autumn of late spring.
Autumn, in October and November, starts off better than the peaks of most English summers with an average high temperature of 23Â°C. This is perhaps the perfect time to visit the area as the hot day times are complemented by cool evenings with average lows of 14Â°C. While October is the yearâs wettest month, rain levels are still not very high by northern hemisphere standards, and will usually fall in short showers. However, there is considerable less sun with only six per day on average. November sees a drop in the average high to 18Â°C and in the average low to 10Â°C: better for a walking holiday, though the sea is still quite warm at 18Â°C.
Winter, from December till February, is quite an unpredictable season. Temperatures are mild with an average high in the coldest month of January of 14Â°C, which has an average low of 6Â°C. Rain levels lessen slightly but become more frequent and the sky can be overcast. The season sees around five hours of sun per day. The changeable nature of weather in this season can mean frost on the ground for a few days with showers and a grey sky with the odd day of blazing sunshine which sends the temperatures climbing up near 20Â°C.
Spring, from March till May, sees the average high temperature climb from a mild 16Â°C to a pleasant 21Â°C, though night time temperatures remain cool, definitely requiring a few extra layers, and the sea does not really warm up enough to swim in till the end of the season. Rain remains unpredictable until March, but the grey sky recedes and the sun comes out for around nine hours a day by mid March.
Can Picafortâs warmth can be attributed to its position in the Mediterranean, which also puts Mallorca in the path of south-westerly winds. The mountainous terrain of the island protects Can Picafort and the rest of the northeast region from these cool, precipitation-bearing winds, which also means less cloud cover.
