Seven departments in orange vigilance “storms and hail”

The weather will still not be good this Friday. While the episode of heat wave exceptional which struck France ended Wednesday evening, part of the territory remained Thursday threatened with thunderstorms violent, with another seven departments placed in orange vigilance, according to Meteo France.

Eight departments have been removed from orange vigilance according to a bulletin released overnight from Thursday to Friday. “This Friday, a new episode of strong thunderstorms is setting up, from the Tarn and Aveyron to the Northern Alps”, writes Météo-France.

In the northeast, “the storms have evacuated to the north and a few localized storm cells still concern Aube”, adds Météo-France, which says it has noted gusts of wind reaching 78 km / h in Charleville-Mézières ( 08).

Risk of violent phenomena

From the department of Tarn to those of Savoie, Météo-France notes a lull in the area concerned with a few passages of showers. But, “further to the west and in northern Spain, the rainy-stormy activity is beginning to resume slowly”, adds the same source. This situation requires “particular vigilance given the risk of violent phenomena”, warned Météo-France, such as gusts of wind of the order of 70 to 90 km / h, even very locally around 100 km / h or more.

Violent thunderstorms, sometimes accompanied by hail​, but small in size, have already hit the Southwest earlier Thursday, with observed rain accumulations of 40 to 60 mm in less than 40 minutes and the number of departments in orange vigilance had risen to 37.

Since Monday already, violent storms accompanied by hail have caused significant material damage in several departments of the center-east, in particular in Saône-et-Loire, in Nièvre or in Allier, as well as in the South-West, where vineyards were affected. This stormy episode comes after an exceptionally early heat wave that hit the whole country from the middle of last week, continuing in the East at the start of the week. Orange “heat wave” vigilance was lifted for the last departments concerned on Wednesday at the end of the day.
