Another heatwave is gripping Mallorca. | Jaume Morey


The third heat wave of the year hit Mallorca today, specifically inland, according the delegate of the State Meteorological Agency (Aemet) in the Balearics, María José Guerrero and the intense heat, especially inland, is expected to last until Sunday or Monday of next week.

Heatwaves have become increasingly common in Mallorca. The island has gone from having one in the 1990s to six in the past three years, including this latest one, which is already affecting the interior of the island. This year has also broken another historic record since records have been kept, with the longest heatwave since mid-July.

Although they will not be affected by the heat wave, temperatures will also be very high in other parts of Mallorca.

For this reason, the Aemet has activated the yellow heat alert and the warning will remain in place in the interior on Wednesday, but will no longer affect the south and east; instead it will affect the north and northeast.

On Thursday the yellow alert will remain active in the interior and the south.
In all areas with a warning, maximum temperatures of 36º are expected, except in the interior, where they could reach 37º.
