Flooding in Porreres on Thursday afternoon, | Cati Amores

Some heavy downpours on Thursday. The Aemet official rainfall tally to 7.30pm gives 41.8 litres per square metre in Lluc as the heaviest, but unofficially the Porreres area had some 70 litres. There was certainly flooding in different parts of the interior. The fact that there was such heavy rain in Lluc points to the isolated nature of showers, as the Tramuntana hadn't been on alert, while there was a storm that developed and resulted in the downpours in the interior. The yellow in the radar image below indicates some particularly heavy rain.

Radar for Mallorca on June 1.

For Friday, we have much the same situation. There is a yellow alert for rain (up to 25 litres per square metre in an hour) for the south of Mallorca and the interior from 1pm Friday to 7pm; thunderstorms and hail also possible.

There are no alerts at present beyond Friday, which isn't to say that there won't be. Depending on the area of Mallorca, there is a high probability of rain every day until Wednesday at least. But such is the nature of the showers that there are parts of Mallorca remaining dry and with good amounts of sun, e.g. the north coast.
