For several years, Vannes (Morbihan) has been at the top of flattering rankings such as those of the greenest cities, where life is good, where residents are the safest… But a new ranking has darkened the picture.

The end of the sweet life?

The city located on the shores of the Gulf of Morbihan, which has long been highlighted for the mildness of its climate, has just experienced a setback… Météo Bretagne has in fact just revealed that Vannes is the city in the West which recorded the largest anomaly in terms of precipitation, since the start of 2024: +48% compared to the normal deviation (calculated over 1991-2020). It was recorded +540 mm over five months. Vannes is sadly at the top of the podium followed by Quimper (+42%), Nantes (+39%), Brest (+38%), Lorient (+27%)…

The revenge of northern Brittany

Even though the amounts of precipitation are consistent with the norm on the Emerald Coast (Saint-Malo, Dinard, etc.). What if northern Brittany, often mocked for its quantity of rain, (finally) had its revenge?
