On Wednesday, Aemet is forecasting occasional showers, some of the muddy variety, and possible thunderstorms. The high temperatures will drop a bit - to between 28 and 33C. Best of the weather will be in the east of Mallorca.

A combination of the remains of Storm Danielle and a polar front are causing the unsettled conditions, Aemet saying that thunderstorms on Thursday could be locally strong and with hail. There will be a further slight drop in temperatures. Cloudy conditions will continue on Friday, with the probability of scattered showers. There will again be the risk of locally strong thunderstorms with hail.

Aemet issued an updated forecast shortly after 11am on Wednesday. From 10pm Wednesday until 8am Thursday, there are yellow alerts for heavy rain and thunderstorms for the whole of Mallorca. Aemet has also issued the same alerts for Friday 8am until 8pm. Minorca also has alerts, including one for sudden rise in sea level, the "rissaga" meteotsunami.

Saturday is also not looking too clever, but there should be a real improvement on Sunday.

Alcudia 33C, light north and west breezes.

Andratx 31C, light west-southwest breezes.

Deya 30C, light westerly breeze.
