During the winter months, Mistral winds (NW) and Tramontana winds (N) are the most frequent winds in Mallorca which blow alternating with S and SW wind directions.
From middle of March the first thermal winds are starting to blow, shyly, mostly in warmer days.
With the arrival of good weather thermals become more and more frequent alternating with the influences of some possible high and low pressure areas affecting the Balearics mostly during Spring season.
The end of August generally marks the beginning of the end of thermals, being September and October months of absolute unpredictability.
Weather is summer like and temperatures oscilate between 22 and 35 Celsius but nonetheless the thermals become scarce and if any they start blowing not before 14h and just for a while, stopping after barely one hour of light breeze and generally not returning anymore for the day.
