The heat does not expect to wait for the official start of summer, scheduled for June 21, to make its comeback in France.

From the weekend of June 11 and 12, 2022, the mercury should once again exceed the 30°C mark for the entire southern half of the country. Temperatures will be “between 30 and 35 °C in the shade, i.e. an excess of around 7-8 °C compared to seasonal norms”, reports La Chaîne Météo. The cause: the return of the Azores anticyclone to France.

This heat wave which will continue at the beginning of next week should extend to the whole country between Wednesday and Thursday. In several departments, the mercury should flirt with 40°C, in particular on Saturday June 18, 2022, which should be the hottest day of the week.

In the slideshow below, find the list of departments where it will be over 33°C next weekend.

This episode is considered a heat wave by meteorologists “since some regions will experience at least 3 consecutive days of strong heat with temperatures 5 to 10 ° C higher than average”, reports La Chaîne Météo.

On the other hand, if the cold drop, responsible for a heat wave in Spain, were to block off Portugal, “it would act as a heat pump and this episode of very high temperatures could turn into a lasting heat wave in many regions” , estimates the specialized site. We will have to wait a few more days to know precisely the duration and intensity of these possible scorching heat.
