Everybody is enjoying the prolonged summer and the Met. office has confirmed that this month is proving to be one of the warmest on record in Palma.
Palma.—Last weekend saw thousands of people either heading to the fair in Inca or the beach and on Sunday, the highest temperature recorded in Majorca was at the airport where 7 reached 33.5ºC, breaking the previous record of 33.2 ºC recorded ten years ago. Since the middle of last week, temperatures have steadily been climbing and, in the short term, the forecast is for the warm and dry weather to continue with only a few possible showers on Wednesday.
So, those holiday makers who have decided to come to Majorca for a late October break instead of the Canary Islands, have made the right choice.
The Canary Islands spent the weekend being battered by torrential rain, gale force winds and severe flooding with the clean up continuing yesterday.
The national Met. office is currently forecasting another week of fine weather with maximum temperatures in Majorca remaining between 23ºC and 26ºC.
And, October appears to be following the climate trend for this year.
September was also warmer and drier than usual.
