Still no anticyclone in sight! Weather conditions remain desperately disrupted in France with several cold drops in the area. Heavy rains are affecting Gironde and Charente-Maritime this morning. Sustained rains also affect the Grand Est region where soils are more than saturated after weekend flooding.

These disrupted conditions will continue over the coming days with thunderstorms, sometimes very rainy, in most regions. At the very end of the week, pressures should rise through the west of France, providing us with temporarily more pleasant weather conditions. However, the disturbances could quickly return from the northwest. You will have understood, no big blue sky in sight for the next few days!

Be careful during heavy rain!

Since last night, heavy rain has affected Gironde and Charente-Maritime. These stormy rains actually affect the northwestern quarter of France, extending to the Pays de la Loire, Brittany and Normandy.

A depression over Germany also causes rainy weather between Hauts-de-France and the Grand Est region. These rains should be monitored because they fall on saturated soils. Only the southeastern regions are favored with sunny weather.

This afternoon, the weather will remain unstable over most of the country. Thunderstorms will be strong and very rainy at times in the northwest regions. Rains will remain sustained along the northeastern borders. A little milder and brighter weather will affect the regions located south of the Garonne. The sun will continue to shine between the Mediterranean and Corsica.

Barely seasonal temperatures

With all this instability, temperatures will once again remain a few degrees below seasonal norms, some cities do not exceed 20 degrees at the best time of the day.

At this time of year, we should have at least 20 degrees in the north and 22 to 23 degrees in the south. Only Mediterranean regions will have seasonal temperatures this afternoon, with 23 to 24 degrees in the shade.

A disrupted week!

Wednesday will once again be an unstable day with thunderstorms in most regions. The latter could be more common near the Atlantic or in eastern regions. Slightly better clearings could continue in the central regions. Mediterranean regions will continue to benefit from sunny conditions.

On Thursday, the risk of thunderstorms will persist in most regions. However, storms could become rarer for this day between New Aquitaine and Champagne. The sun will continue to shine in the Mediterranean.

Slight improvement from Friday?

From Friday, pressures could become a little more anticyclonic again near the Atlantic. The clearings should therefore prevail and be more beautiful between the Channel coasts and the Atlantic arc. In the rest of the country, stormy showers will once again be possible, particularly in the afternoon.

A little warmer weekend?

For the weekend of May 25 and 26, temperatures should regain some color and get closer to seasonal norms.

Saturday could be a slightly more pleasant day with nice clearings across the country. However, the risk of thunderstorms will persist in eastern France.

On Sunday, calm weather should prevail in most regions with nice clearings. However, a disturbance will enter the country from the northwest and will once again bring rainy weather between Brittany and Normandy.

Next week seems to be very disrupted again across the country, with temperatures nevertheless close to seasonal norms. We are therefore not expected to see the end of the tunnel any time soon!
