A new episode of hot weather is expected in France in the coming days. If, on this Saturday, August 6, the temperatures have dropped somewhat everywhere in France, except in the South-East where several departments remain under vigilance, “the temperatures start to rise again from Sunday on the South West and win the northern half on Monday,” warns Météo France. See as well. With the drought, more than 100 municipalities deprived of drinking water in France 37°C in the South as of Sunday Temperatures reaching 35°C to 37°C are for example expected on Sunday from the South-West to the South-East and 30°C 34°C are expected further north. Only a small northwest quarter will remain below the 30°C mark. And these high temperatures should still settle for the week to come. “These high maximum temperatures could very probably be maintained over the long term in the country”, continues Météo France. “This new heat wave is likely to be lasting” “The very hot air present over the Mediterranean will rise over France from the start of next week, to progress northwards. This new heat wave is likely to be long-lasting,” warns La Chaîne Météo. According to her, two scenarios are possible. In the first, most likely, the heat wave will last from Monday to Friday, or even until Saturday. It would be the fourth heat wave of this summer 2022, an exceptionally high figure. The hottest days would be between Wednesday and Friday, with up to over 40°C in the West. Read also: Heat wave. Exceeding the 40°C threshold has become commonplace in France The second scenario, much less probable, would see the heat wave end earlier thanks to the arrival of cooler ocean air from the northwest. But, “in both cases, France will not avoid strong heat”. The drought will get worse “These new high temperatures should continue to aggravate the dryness of the soil despite the storms this weekend”, deplores Météo France. chevron_leftchevron_right
