Apparently, temperatures in the Balearics had averaged out higher than usual because of the heat during the last few days of the month. The maximum temperatures in Murcia and the Balearic Islands during this period were slightly above the 30 degrees mark, confirmed AEMET in its report yesterday.
The agency described rainfall levels in the Balearics as normal to dry in April whilst in most other regions of the country, rainfall was clearly higher than average for the time of year.
Meanwhile, Sunday's storms and intense rainfall on Majorca resulted in tragedy in Pollensa when a young man was left in a coma after being hit by lightning during scuba diving trials.
Simultaneously, agricultural fairs in both Campos and Sineu were badly affected by a downpour before lunch resulting in many fair goers heading for home before they could enjoy the livestock exhib- itions and arts and crafts stalls. Balearic government officials including the Agriculture Minister Biel Company were sent scurrying for shelter.
