MALLORCA TODAY - Weather Alcúdia and Pollensa 16 July 2013
No Frills Excursions
Morning high (7.30am): 25C
Forecast high: 31C
Sea conditions (northern Mallorca; Alcúdia and Pollensa bays): Variable 2 increasing to Northeast 3 during the middle of the day.
Not really very much to say as it's very much a case of the weather and the forecast repeating itself. Sunny morning, sunny day ahead and hot.
The local met office has said that the current pattern of weather and so therefore heatwave will continue until at least the 24th of the month, giving coastal highs of 30 degrees or higher and "tropical" evenings and nights. It also says that there are chances of short showers in the late afternoons and early evenings, more likely inland, because of shifts in and collisions of winds, which are typical for this time of the year. The wind patterns can in fact be very noticeable and very obvious, especially on the coasts in the north: calm breezes in the mornings tend to be replaced by sudden, stronger breezes from the north at around 1pm, which then tend to die down later in the afternoon.
Evening update (21.15): A high of 33.4C inland and 32C on the coast. Hot, therefore.
