Thanks to low pressure over Spain, S, SW winds blowing off Africa has enhanced an already warm air mass affecting the Balearic Islands Friday. On the western side of Mallorca, open to the Saharan wind, temperatures touched the 40C mark which is rare for here.

The 40.1C recorded at Palma Airport Friday was just 0.5C shy of the July record set back in 1983. For context, the average July high for Palma is only 29.4C.
