After many stormy showers and cool air for the Ascension weekend, temperatures are starting to rise and reach seasonal normals. Indeed, the editorial staff of La Chaîne Météo predicts a heat peak for the Pentecost weekend. Discover in our slideshow below the departments affected by summer weather.

“The weather will improve across France with a few more nuances, namely sunshine in the northern two-thirds and thunderstorms in the south”, specifies the editorial staff of La Chaîne Météo. This climate change can be explained in particular by the Atlantic anticyclone which will spread to many regions in France.

While many departments will be affected by this heat peak, some areas will still be affected by thunderstorms, particularly in the south of France. “This configuration could be maintained for the three days, despite limited reliability concerning the evolution of Monday”, add the meteorologists of La Chaîne Météo. In addition, the sun will be predominant in two thirds of the country.

For Saturday, the northern regions of France will still be hit by strong winds. However, the situation should improve as the day progresses. But from the first day of the weekend, temperatures will reach 27°C in some areas. We can note an improvement on Sunday in the departments where the clouds remained predominant. Temperatures will be between 15 and 28°C throughout the metropolitan territory.

Nevertheless, Pentecost Monday should be marked by the return of thunderstorms in certain departments. Temperatures will also begin to drop. Discover in our slideshow below those who are affected by this heat peak.
