Violent rain accompanied by gusts of wind and risk of hail: storms continue this Wednesday, 12 departments placed on orange alert

In the departments placed on orange alert, sometimes violent thunderstorms are expected with high rainfall intensities.

Weather vigilance for storms continues and concerns new departments for this day of Wednesday June 19. Météo France has placed 12 departments on orange alert from 6 p.m.: Allier, Cher, Corrèze, Côte-d’Or, Creuse, Indre, Loire, Nièvre, Puy-de-Dôme, Saône-et-Loire, Haute-Vienne and Yonne.

“The most violent storms and the strongest associated rainfall accumulations are expected in these departments”indicates Météo-France which also specifies that a “Worsening of vigilance is possible in the departments on the sidelines of this episode, currently on yellow vigilance. Vigilance could therefore be called upon to evolve during the day.

After a relative calm, the situation became very stormy again at the end of the afternoon and during the night from Wednesday to Thursday over a large part of the country. We could thus achieve local accumulations of around 30 to 50 mm in less than 3 hours, and 50 to 80 mm over the episode. Hail is also possible as well as wind gusts of around 70 to 80 km/h.

Thunderstorm activity declines from the middle of the night from Wednesday to Thursday but rainy activity can still continue in the areas concerned until Thursday morning. A new potentially very active rainstorm degradation is once again expected over a large part of the country.
