Blue skies and cloud over Pollensa. | Xesca Serra

The forecast for Friday is for possible showers in the morning, but it is a better forecast than it had been earlier in the week. UV rating 10.

In Minorca, there is an amber alert for a sudden rise in sea level. This applies until midnight, when Aemet lowers it to yellow. What this means is that there is a high risk of "rissaga", the local word for a meteotsunami. While there is no alert for Mallorca, it may be possible that parts of the island experience the same phenomenon, which is not uncommon in summer.
