The weather will be calm Thursday in the west of the country, but more unstable on the east facade, according to Météo-France forecasts released Wednesday.
At dawn, greyness will again be present from the shore of the Landes Basque coast, and win the Gascony. The low clouds will dissipate during the morning to give way to a clear sky most often clear until the second half of the afternoon when they will be back.
Stormy character on the reliefs
Instability will prevail again on Corsica throughout the day. The showers will be frequent, with possible storms that can give good rainfall accumulations in places. On the shores of the Mediterranean, from the Pyrénées-Orientales to the Alpes-Maritimes, the sun will be generous throughout the day even if altitude banks of clouds will scroll from time to time.
From the Toulouse Midi to the Massif Central, from the Center-Val de Loire to Brittany to Normandy and the Hauts-de-France, the clearings will be cloudy. On the Great East, Burgundy-Franche-Comté, the northern Alps, the day will begin under a variable sky, alternating between thunderstorms and cloudy periods carrying a few showers. These showers will then win the Auvergne, the southern Alps, the Toulouse midi and the Pyrenees by taking a stormy character on the relief.
Still very hot in the southeast
The minimum temperatures will range from 9 to 13 degrees in Brittany and from 14 to 17 in the rest of the country. They will go from 18 to 23 on the edges of the Mediterranean as well as in Corsica. The maximum temperatures will reach 19 to 21 degrees on the Channel coast, 22 to 27 on the north-west quarter of the country, 27 to 31 elsewhere. But they will still be between 31 and 34 in the Southeast, and will reach up to 35 to 36 degrees in the Hérault, Gard and Vaucluse.
