Weather: mildness returns to France this week


Thanks to the “high pressure potato” phenomenon, temperatures should return to seasonal values ​​this week and the sun should shine in the west and south.

Sweetness is back in France.

The hexagon is located, in fact, on the edge of an anticyclone installed a few hundred kilometers from our coasts, on the Atlantic, explains the Weather Channel *.

The weather will therefore be generally dry in the West and South and temperatures should return to seasonal norms.

This powerful anticyclone is nicknamed “potato anticyclone” because of its potato shape.

It should bring milder temperatures until the school holidays.

Hold snow in the mountains

However, the sun will not shine over all of France.

Some disturbances, which are circulating in Germany, will manage to circumvent the high and will mainly concern the northern and northeastern part of the country.

The weather should therefore remain humid and gray in these regions even if the cumulative precipitation should remain low.

Thanks to the maritime air from the British Isles, however, it will be less cold.

Temperatures should indeed return to seasonal values ​​from Tuesday.

The anticyclone could become

"very strong in the West"

from Thursday, according to the Weather Channel.

Good weather should therefore prevail in the South and on the mountains even if the North-East quarter will remain under the influence of clouds.

It should also be sunny this weekend in the south.

Temperatures could be around 15°C in the mountains even if the wind could give a much lesser feeling.

The Weather Channel also predicts the maintenance of snow, which should delight skiers as the winter holidays approach.

These temperatures associated with the lack of rain could however increase the risk of drought.

The Bureau of Geological and Mining Research (BRGM) issued an alert on January 13 to the worrying level of groundwater.

If the rain were to be as rare as in 2022, the summer of 2023 could be affected by a worrying drought.
