Six departments on orange flood alert Tuesday

There rain doesn’t seem to want to stop falling. Although the sky is not about to fall on our heads, the weather on Tuesday will still be rainy. Meteo France placed on orange alert raw six departments, Charente-Maritime, Doubs, Jura, Nord, Pas-de-Calais and Vendée.

Savoie and Haute-Savoie will also be affected, with orange Rain-flood vigilance. At daybreak, we will find a rainy area extending from Pays-de-la-Loire to Aquitaine, and to the Grand-Est and Alps. This precipitation will be more sustained on the eastern flank, particularly on the two Savoies placed in orange alert Rain-flood.

The edge of the Mediterranean spared

Further north, the sky will alternate between cloudy periods and clear spells, but as the afternoon progresses, there will be frequent showers along the Channel coast. They will once again bring good accumulations to the west of Hauts-de-France. A clap of thunder cannot be ruled out near the coast.

In the evening, the rains will progress to the Pyrenees, while the weather will become dry again over a large northwest quarter. Only the Mediterranean region will maintain calm conditions all day long with beautiful sunshine. The westerly wind will blow hard on the coasts of Brittany and the English Channel with gusts to 60/70 km/h, up to 80 to 90 km/h in the morning.

From 9 to 14 degrees in general

In Corsica, the west to southwest wind will blow strongly with gusts of 70 to 90 km/h towards Balagne and on the terrain, and will exceed 100 km/h near Cape Corsica.

It will be 9 to 14 degrees in general, 16 to 19 degrees from the coasts of PACA to Corsica. The maximums will be between 13 and 17 degrees in the northern half. They will remain mild in the South with 18 to 23 degrees and up to 25 to 26 degrees near the coasts of Roussillon, on the Var coasts and in Corsica.
