Palma.—Temperatures keep rising in Majorca with thermometres rarely registering less than 30ºC during the day and 21 degrees at night.
These “tropical nights”, as they are being called, have been felt more strongly in the Porto Pi area, where temperatures have not dropped below 20ºC for the past nine consecutive nights with humidity levels reaching 80 percent.

Specialists from the Balearic Meteorological and Weather Agency (AEMET) say these temperatures are still normal in coastal areas in Majorca for this time of the year, which is usually around 20.4ºC and that no record has been broken so far.

The prediction for the next few days is much of the same with temperatures expected to be above 30ºC on a daily basis although this could change towards the end of July.

In the rural areas of Majorca, citizens have also experienced some tropical nights with temperatures peaking at around 19ºC.
But if the over night temperatures are said to be normal during the day it's a different story with specialists confirming they are two or three degrees above normal.

Despite that they assured there was no reason to “sound the alarm.”
