Last night (Wednesday), Mallorcans were finally given a break from the tropical nights with minimum temperatures falling below 20 degrees.
The deputy spokesman for Balearic State Meteorological Agency (Aemet), Miquel Gili, said today that is had been a long time coming because the island has had to endure weeks of tropical nights with temperatures above 25ºC.
Gili said that the temperatures dropped to as low as 12.8º in some areas; in Escorca it was 14º. In Palma however, the temperature did exceed 20ºC, 22.6ºC to be precise. However, it was lower than the 25.5º on Tuesday night.
“It was the second night in August that was not torrid,” said the deputy spokesman. Looking ahead to the next few days, Gili has forecast that night temperatures are expected to rise slightly again and we will once again have tropical nights, as the minimum temperatures will not drop below 20ºC.
With regards to the storm, the north east of Mallorca and Minorca got the brunt of it.
