This November has been the rainiest for 20 years in the Serra de Tramuntana, according to Deputy Spokesperson, Miquel Gili, from the State Meteorological Agency, Aemet.
Up until Monday, 674 litres of rainwater per m2 had been registered in Son Torrella, which is where the reservoirs are and that’s the highest figure since 2001. 561 litres per m2 were also recorded in Lluc.
139 litres per m2 fell in Palma, which is the highest for 8 years; Pollensa has also had the highest rainfall in 8 years and Porreres hasn’t had this much rain for 7 years.
Mallorca is on a yellow alert for heavy rain until 21:00 tonight and until 06:00 tomorrow morning in the north and east.
It’s forecast to clear up a bit today but there were some heavy showers in Palma early this morning and in the north and east of the island.
The DANA nucleus is starting to move towards the Balearics from the mainland, so it will be cooler, with highs of 14º-17º and lows of 5º-12º.
