After a weekend marked by violent weather, the storms have not said their last word. According to La Chaîne Météo, the country lies “between an Atlantic depression and a powerful anticyclone stretching from Tunisia to central Europe”. A situation that will be responsible for a significant stormy deterioration throughout the week, before a general improvement next weekend.
From this Monday, June 19, 2023, a stormy wave crosses France from the Pyrenees to the northeast of the country. In this context, Météo-France has placed around sixty departments on storm alert, including 15 on orange alert. Find out if your department is affected in our slideshow below.
For the rest of the week, stormy weather will be sustained over most of the territory. “In Brittany, the weather should remain calm. Near the Mediterranean, you should keep the weather stable but windy due to a persistent sailor who will limit the high heat by the sea”, specifies La Chaîne Météo. Temperatures will be very summery in the east of the country, and could even approach 40°C in Corsica due to the lifting of Siroco. Thursday, “the storms will reach the east of the Rhône and the Saône where the temperatures will finally drop”, indicates the forecaster.
The calm should be felt from Friday, thanks to the arrival of the Azores high. “With the lifting of the north wind, the temperatures will drop a little, while remaining above normal for the season”, specifies the site specializing in meteorology.
