The weather this weekend: a sudden cooling


Over the next two days, France is experiencing a sharp drop in temperatures, with a risk of bad weather, and the return of snow in the mountains.

This weekend is experiencing very degraded weather, with a sharp drop in temperatures, relative on Saturday, then generalized on Sunday, according to the Weather Channel *.


This Saturday still promises to be unstable with steady winds and showers, but will not completely eclipse the sunny spells.

It is therefore the least gloomy day of the weekend.

The North West

is experiencing an improvement after the stormy showers on Friday.

The wind remains quite strong along the English Channel, and is milder in the afternoon.

By the sea, the end of the high tides arrives, but at the time of the morning high tide, the waves are very strong and risk breaking over the dikes.

The expected minimum temperatures range from 8 to 10°C, the maximum from 12 to 14°C.

, the weather promises to be variable, but more constant on the showers than this Friday.

Clouds and clearings take turns, with a still moderate wind.

The weather is still relatively mild for the season.

The minimum temperatures oscillate between 8 and 9°C, the maximum between 12 and 14°C.

North of the Seine, in Seine-Maritime, in Hauts-de-France and in Champagne-Ardenne,

very unstable weather is expected, with numerous showers and strong winds.

Gusts reach 80 km / h, especially in the morning on the Opal Coast and the Strait of Pas-de-Calais.

The minimum temperatures are maintained between 7 and 9°C, the maximum between 12 and 13°C.

In the South-West

, the weather remains quite cloudy in northern Aquitaine and Limousin.

Further south, the weather is dry and variable, without wind, offering a pleasant and spring-like feeling, including in the Pyrenees.

The minimum temperatures range from 8 to 10°C, the maximum from 14 to 18°C.

In Occitania

, the weather promises to be dry with a veiled sun, for a feeling that is pleasant and mild.

Minimum temperatures of 9 to 11°C are expected, and maximums of 17 to 19°C.

In the South-East

, the wind is blowing hard in the PACA region, in particular the mistral and the wind descending from the Alps, and in Corsica, with gusts of up to 130 km/h on the exposed capes.

The sky remains generally clear, and temporarily veiled.

The mildness is appreciable on the Côte d'Azur, between Fréjus and Italy, thanks to the westerly wind.

Temperatures range from 9 to 14°C for the minimum, from 18 to 23°C for the maximum.

The Center-East

keeps a very cloudy and unstable weather, softened by some clearings which appear especially in Auvergne and south of Lyon.

The reliefs remain well hung with frequent showers and snow from 1500 m.

The lull comes at the end of the day.

The minimum temperatures tighten between 6 and 8°C, the maximum between 13 and 16°C.

Finally, for the Great East,

the weather is gloomy, very cloudy, and frequent showers and sometimes sleet appear near the borders and on the Vosges.

The wind is strong (60 to 70 km/h), offering a rather unpleasant feeling.

The minimum temperatures range from 7 to 8°C, the maximum from 13 to 14°C.


On Sunday, the situation will deteriorate more markedly across the country.

The winds will blow stronger, particularly over the Atlantic arc, in mountainous regions and around the Mediterranean.

The rain blows will also be more abundant.

Temperatures therefore drop sharply, marking a sudden transition after several particularly mild days.

Temperatures range from 6 to 10°C in the morning, and will not exceed 10 to 13°C during the day, except around the Mediterranean where it will still be 16 to 19°C.

A new blow of snow, accompanied by a brutal cooling arrives on all the massifs.

On Sunday, it can snow from 1200 to 1300 m.

The Pyrenees are currently the most exposed to heavy snowfall and strong winds at altitude.
