Balearics swelter with suffocating 33.6C low, 42.5C high

The cool, breezy and often showery pattern holds firm over the UK and Ireland while the blowtorch continues to the south and east. A 2nd unusually strong blast of African air has engulfed the Balearics in recent days.

First we see an overnight minimum temperature fail to drop below 33.6C.

Followed by a low of 32.4C the following night.

During the day a new all-time record of 42.5C was set yesterday in San Cabaneta, Mallorca. The old record dated back to 1976.

Other sites exceeded 41C on Mallorca and Menorca.

These night and day values are very rare and so I wanted to post on this.
