Climate in the valley of Sóller

This is Sóller, too: the cloudy and snow
covered Sierra de Alfabia

Basically the climate here in the valley is subtropical as everywhere on Mallorca. However, the micro climate of the valley is characterized by its proximity to the sea and the surrounding high mountain ranges of the Sierra de Tramuntana. This leads to somewhat more rain than in Palma de Mallorca; it may freeze in winter and under extreme conditions it even snows occasionally, which can be admired on the top of the mountains around Sóller virtually every winter for a few days.

Strong variations from weather conditions in Palma (which are the bases of most weather forecasts) are a direct result of the Tramuntana mountain range acting as a cloud and weather barrier. It may be beautiful and sunny in Sóller while it pours cats and dogs in Palma and vice-versa. Rain clouds can get caught from both sides of the Sierra de Tramuntana .
