No yellow alerts for high temperatures on Wednesday, but some unsettled and rather odd conditions, indicative of which is a yellow alert for sudden rise in sea level in Menorca - the 'rissaga' meteotsunami.

As to rain on Wednesday, the probability varies across the island and decreases in the afternoon. Some stiff breezes are being forecast, while there is something of a divide in terms of temperature. Higher values forecast in the north, and it may be that these continue. While maximums in the south and east of the island are expected to be around 27 or 28C from Thursday on, these are forecast to be up to three or four degrees higher in the north. Rain is also likely on Thursday, with the outlook for Friday now better than it was - sunny but quite breezy.

There are no specific forecasts for thunderstorms, but Aemet has said that they are possible. UV rating on Wednesday is 10.
