Violent storms affected the north-eastern quarter of France on Wednesday. They are the result of an air mass conflict that took place over the country.

This animation produced on Tuesday allows you to visualize the situation. The strongest storm cells formed where the warm and cold areas meet.

This battle in the air also caused significant temperature differences on each side. The warm air mass was in the north of the country and the cold air was in the south. This rather unusual situation results from the action of the depression which led to the storms. At 4 p.m. on Wednesday, the temperature difference between the north-east and south-west of the country was around 20°C!

Gradual return to normal

At that time, the official Météo France station recorded 28°C in Strasbourg (Bas-Rhin). It even rose to 28.6°C at 4:40 p.m. At the same time, in Pau, in the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, the thermometer showed just over 7°C. In the region, by the sea, in Biarritz, it was barely warmer at around ten degrees.

In the case of Alsace, the value displayed is approximately 2°C higher than the average maximum temperature in the heart of summer. In the Pyrénées-Atlantiques, conversely, it is several degrees lower than the average temperature peak expected in the middle of a winter day. This Thursday, the situation gradually returns to normal. In the South-West, it is around fifteen degrees, a little higher on the border with Germany.
