The August Bank Holiday in the UK has had very good hot weather. Rain and Storms are normally the UK weather for Bank Holidays. A complete turnaround of the weather is occurring in the Balearics. The Farmers will welcome the rain, but not the Storms. Tourists will not be pleased, and the beaches empty, but the Buses and shops will be well attended.
