Finally… Savor a coffee, taste a dish of the day or drink the first sip of beer with friends.
The terraces of cafes and restaurants will reopen.
After more than six months of weaning, we can already feel the taste on our taste buds and the sun on our palate skin.
But precisely, will the capricious weather of this Wednesday really cool the ardor and desires of those in a hurry?
“May 19 will not be a sprain at the beginning of the month.
It will not be very hot yet, describes Stéphane Nedeljkovitch, forecaster at MeteoNews, temperatures, without being wintery, are below normal.
The depression based on Ireland and Great Britain brings us a westerly flow.
In other words, expect "gloomy weather".
To sum up, it will be umbrellas in our glasses, umbrellas above our heads!
The expected mercury is not really up to our patio dreams.
At its highest, 13 ° C in Belfort and Aurillac, 14 ° C in Brest and 16 ° C in Paris.
A glass, a sweater, a raincoat
So you just have to think about putting on a sweater before going to your favorite bistro. And a raincoat too? "Some showers are to be feared with sometimes locally hail," opines Stéphane Nedeljkovitch. The Hauts-de-France, Grand-Est, Bourgogne Franche-Comté and Rhône-Alpes, will be the wettest. “Our Belgian neighbors knew how to drink under downpours when their terraces reopened on May 8, so in these affected regions, we could also order a balloon under the rain caps.
For those who prefer to look at the half to half full, “we do not expect uniformly gray days, there will be sunny spells.
In this season, the sun being high in the sky, the sensations are quickly pleasant, ”reassures meteorologist Guillaume Séchet.
At the end of the day, moreover, it will emerge for all the west and as far as Île-de-France.
“Better from the last few days.
In these regions, we can say that the opening of the terraces is timely, ”said François Gourand, forecaster at Météo France.
On the Mediterranean rim, the sun is well deconfined
Since the curfew passes this Wednesday at 9 p.m., we will be able to stretch our outdoor aperitifs a bit. In Brittany, this Wednesday, the tables set outside will remain dry, as on the entire west coast. Some French people will be able to sip their drinks under the blue sky. The most privileged are, as very often, the same: Corsicans, Niçois, Marseillais. Because on the Mediterranean rim, the sun is indeed deconfined.
And the following days, will we be able to relax on the terraces? Not really. Thursday the sky will perhaps be a little clearer but the weather will remain changeable with frequent showers until the end of the month. “There is a boulevard for the disturbances of the Atlantic, explains Guillaume Séchet, as long as the high pressure does not pierce durably there will be no new days of great sunshine over the whole country. "The pro of the heavens recalls that we have not known such a fresh spring" for at least five years ".
