TEMPERATURES plummeted noticeably in the Islands yesterday producing one of the coldest days so far this Autumn.
In Portopi in Palma, thermometers were registering no more than 7 degrees in the middle of the afternoon whilst the average temperature for this time of the year is 16.5 degrees. Head of the Balearic Met Office, Agustin Jansa said that the highest temperature recordings for the day had been during the early hours of the morning which is another unusual factor. The maximum reached in Portopi was 12 degrees at midnight.

Rainfall was also particularly heavy yesterday, particularly over the latter part of Tuesday into Wednesday morning. To quote an example, between midnight and 8am yesterday, 47 litres of water per square metre fell in Sant Telm and 42 in Lluc. Portopi escaped more lightly with 25 litres per square metre for the whole day. The ongoing rain has meant that the underground springs of Ses Fonts Ufanes have broken the surface in spectacular cascades for the sixth time so far this year.
