Caution is advised in hot weather. As La Chaîne Météo indicates, an early and exceptional episode of strong heat began this Wednesday, June 15, 2022, and should last until Saturday. “In the plains of the south-west, and especially along the Aquitaine coast, the maximum temperatures rise less than on Tuesday due to a cloudier sky and the lifting of a weak westerly wind from ‘maritime origin’, notes the site specializing in meteorology. Temperatures soared to 36°C in Haute-Garonne and Tarn.
For the day of Thursday, June 16, 2022, the forecaster announces temperatures beyond the heat wave thresholds in many departments. “Peaks of 40°C are expected in Languedoc-Roussillon, Ardèche and Drôme, as well as from Pays de la Loire to New Aquitaine. In these western regions, such values are exceptional”, indicates La Chaîne Météo . It would be the first time that the 40°C threshold has been reached so early since the start of records in mainland France.
According to the forecaster, the days of Friday June 17 and Saturday June 18 will be the hottest of the series, with temperatures close to 40°C in Brittany and in the Pays-de-la-Loire… But not only. In our slideshow below, discover all the departments where it will be 40°C or more this weekend.
