Cold front brings snow and ice to Mallorca

Miserable weather set to continue An icy cold front moving down from northern Europe brought snow and freezing rain to Mallorca yesterday (Wednesday). By the morning the temperature in the mountains had dropped to zero and people sat shivering in their houses, while at lower altitudes people had to put up with incessant rain. A blanket of snow 10cm thick covered the ground at 400m and above and meteorologists are forecasting more cold and rainy weather to come over the weekend.
