Autumn is just around the corner. Stormy phenomena are appearing in France, and the temperature should drop this week. If officially he will only knock on September 23, France has started the change of season well.

Thunder, lightning and strong wind. Here is the program for this afternoon, according to the bulletin of September 7, 2022 at 6 a.m. from Météo France. While a yellow alert reigns over 74 departments, 11 others are the subject of storm orange vigilance.

Because gusts of up to 80 to 100 km can appear punctually and up to 60 mm of rain are expected. The weather will become calm and dry again from Thursday.

To find out which departments are affected by these potentially dangerous phenomena this afternoon, Planet has produced the slideshow below which lists them. In addition, this bulletin may still be subject to modification and clarification from meteorologists, the forecasts therefore remain to be confirmed.

When the weather is not good, you have to take cover. At the risk of injury during the passage of a dangerous climatic anomaly, as with these 11 cm hailstones which fell on Spain a few days ago… Or this “mini-tornado” which appeared in Bourg-Blanc, in Finistere.
