The island suffered more downpours yesterday. Everything and everybody almost anywhere in Mallorca got soaking wet. This autumn is really turning into one of the wetter ones for a very long time. The meteorological alert system had been upgraded to Level Yellow for yesterday, and was raised to Level Orange for today, for most of the island bar the North. There should be less rain today, though, but wind speed should be on the increase. There may be storms locally.
The outlook for tomorrow and the weekend is better. Rain should subside, and temperatures should increase to the mid-twenties. Let me remind you that water temperatures in the Mediterranean are still around 23° C, at least near us, in the Southeast of Mallorca. One can still go for a swim in the sea.
My photo shows a reflection of the tower of the Església de Sant Nicolau de Bari on the tarmac of Carrer Unió. The church is one of the four original parish churches in Palma and dates from the 15th century, occupying the remains and site of a smaller, earlier church. I believe the hexagonal tower to be from a later date, possibly from the 17th century.
The photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: October 21st, 2009. The time was 14:11:41.
