Just when residents had thought summer had really arrived, the rains returned in the early hours of yesterday morning. According to the weatherman, an average of 12 libtres per square metres was recorded in several areas. The wettest areas were Porreres and Galilea, where rainfall of 16.3 and 16 litres per square metres was recorded. At the airport, rainfall was 15 litres per square metre, compared to 10.4 litres at Lluc in the mountains, 13.5 litres at Calvia and ten litres in Sa Cabaneta and Porto Pi. The weatherman is predicing cloudy or very cloudy skies today, with light to moderate rainfall during the morning and the possibility of dowpours accompanied by storms at the end of the day. There will be no significant changes in temperatures and moderate southwest winds will veer to northwest in the afternoon. The Majorcans have a saying to the effect that you should not leave off your smock, meaning winter garments, until “the 40th of May,” which means June 9 or thereabouts, when the weather should be settled and the skies clear and sunny.
