As anyone who follows me on social media will know, I am somewhat besotted with the Ibiza weather.
Therefore it gives me great pleasure to report that yesterday’s (5 Sep 2016) temperature of 38.4 degrees Celsius was officially the hottest ever recorded for September in Ibiza since records began in 1961.
This follows what was a relatively ‘cool’ August on the White Isle with average temperatures 1 degree lower than usual due to air currents and occasional summer storms dropping many litres of water and causing steep drops in temperatures.
The State Meteorological Agency (AEMET) has also forecast a ‘very dry’ September although it’s not ruling out isolated storms. The next 10 days will see the mercury hover around the 30 degree mark although the agency said that no yellow alerts are expected.
This is great news for the island that is already experiencing a very busy summer. The hot end to the holiday season will encourage people to fly over. As the closing parties start to loom large many agencies already reporting unprecedented demand for Late September and October.
