Météo France has placed 25 departments on orange vigilance for thunderstorms this Thursday, June 23, mainly in the east and north-east of France. The stormy salvo continues this Thursday, June 23, with potentially violent thunderstorms over eastern and northeastern France. In total, 25 departments were classified in orange vigilance from midday. These are Cantal, Puy-de-Dôme, Haute-Loire, Loire, Rhône, Allier, Saône-et-Loire, Nièvre, Ain, Jura, Côte-d’or, Yonne, Aube, Haute-Marne, Haute -Saône, Doubs, Territory of Belfort, Vosges, Marne, Ardennes, Meuse, Meurthe-et-Moselle, Moselle, Bas-Rhin and Haut-Rhin. “Violent phenomena” “After a temporary lull, a new marked stormy degradation will set in by the Center-East at midday. The storms will spread towards the northeast, during the afternoon” , indicates Météo France, which warns that these storms “will be accompanied by violent phenomena”. It will therefore be necessary to expect in the departments concerned locally heavy hailstorms, intense accumulations of precipitation, occasionally reaching 30 to 50 mm in less than an hour and strong gusts of wind which can reach values of 70 to 90 kph. Thunderstorms in our area? Regarding Occitania, the risk of thunderstorms is also increasing, according to forecasters from Météo Languedoc. Aveyron and Lozère, bordering the departments in orange vigilance, could be particularly affected by thunderstorms with “sometimes heavy hailstorms (risk of hailstone > 3 cm) but also heavy occasional rains”. Regarding the forecast for the day, Météo Languedoc anticipates “strong thunderstorms over all the relief, giving heavy rain, hail and gusts of wind. At the end of the afternoon and especially the following night, storm cells could overflow into the plain, near the Aude in particular, then later between the Hérault and the Gard”. This Thursday, however, no department is placed on alert to the heat wave.
