Thumbs up forecast

15 day forecast available at accuweather.com It is usually quite accurate. Sorry if this is on the wrong part of the site. I'm new here, but a PP addict..
We go to PP every year and this will be our 9th year. Love it love it.

This looks much better for this weekend AccuWeather.com - Palma De Mallorca, SPAIN - Weather Forecast - Local Weather Forecasts

All the other forecasts for today said it would be cloudy. It has been sunny & pretty warm, glorious in fact (am even in shorts...) Will post about our trip to Soller when I get back...

Confused????

According to Accuweather the temp. is going to reach a lovely 25 degrees in Palma today, but just looked at BBC weather and it says maximum of a very average 19 degress. I wonder how there can be such a large discrepancy?

Apparently, it is already 19 degrees in Palma at 0930 (according to the weather on this forum), so it appears the BBC are way off.

Yes, the Beeb always seem to underestimate temperatures by at least 3 degrees... we have noticed this every time we go to PP! Looking at the webcam yesterday it was gorgeous in the port in the afternoon and the weather was about 23 degrees, but not according to the BBC. I've stopped looking at their forecast and started using weather websites - they seem much more reliable, even providing 10-day forecasts. Just Google 'Weather in Mallorca' and you get several to choose from.

Oops, sorry - didn't realise there were other posts above Paul's that already recommend websites offering long-term forecasts - wasn't paying attention! Thanks for the Accuweather tip, will definitely try them in future. There's nothing more annoying than arriving for your holiday with a suitcase full of fleeces to find it's sweltering!

Another lovely day today and already 23 degrees and rising. Accuweather is more accurate than the tv and they do a 15 day forecast.

They do actually also have Pollensa itself: AccuWeather.com - Pollensa, SPAIN - Weather Forecast - Local Weather Forecasts

I've been avidly addicted to all the weather sites for the last 2 weeks as we arrive tomorrow night yay

Thanks for that caitlin, yet another site to check everyday, I find the best forecast is to check into The Tapas Bar everyday, sparky is normally on line and she will let you know what the weather is doing there and then just by looking out the window, have a great time Paul, and do pop in and see us when you can.
