The high temperature warnings will remain in place until at least Friday

The National Meteorological Authority of the Balearic Islands (AEMET) has said the high temperature warnings on the islands will remain in place until at least Friday.

Slightly cloudy to clear skies are expected in the Balearic Islands this Tuesday, with high or very high temperatures, especially in Mallorca, without excluding them in good time on the other islands. The wind will blow slightly from the east and north-east, with a coastal breeze blowing in the afternoon.

With this in mind, Aemet has activated warnings of the risk of high temperatures in the north and north-east of Mallorca, inland, and in the south of the island, where thermometers are expected to reach highs of 38 oC.

Precisely because of the high risk of fire and/or extreme weather conditions, the Balearic Institute of Nature (Ibanat) has banned the lighting of a fire in open areas in Mallorca, Menorca, and Ibiza due to the fire warning issued this Tuesday. Also in the south of the Serra de Tramuntana on Mallorca, the permits for the use of fire were suspended due to the fire warning that day.

The forecast for this Tuesday is very similar to that for Wednesday, when extended skies and high temperatures are also expected. The Aemet indicates that both days will be the hottest days on the islands, and the high may rise by 10 °C, from 38 °C to 39 °C.

In this way, on Wednesday, August 23, the warnings of the risk of high temperatures activated this Tuesday in Mallorca can be extended to the rest of the islands.

The sky will remain clear on Thursday, albeit with morning fog, as was the case on Tuesday and probably also on Wednesday. Temperatures remain high, reaching a maximum of 37°C or 38°C in Mallorca and 36°C in the Pitiusas.

Also on Friday, it will be sunny and the temperatures will be high. However, the warnings would be limited to inland Mallorca, where mercury temperatures are expected to remain high at 37 °C.

For all these days, the Aemet forecasts that nighttime temperatures will also be high, with thermometers between 22ºC and 25ºC, which will mean that the hot nights in the Balearic Islands will continue.

The first high clouds could appear on Saturday

Looking ahead to the weekend, although there are still days to go, early signs of a possible weather change across the islands are expected.

According to Aemet, the first high clouds could appear on Saturday afternoon in particular, as the cold front approaches the peninsula.

Finally, from Sunday or Monday, which is already next week, the models are pointing to a greater likelihood of some storms and precipitation in the archipelago.
