The weather this Wednesday promises to be still unstable in several regions, the sky remaining threatening with showers and thunderstorms, especially in the center-west of the country.

Weather similar to that of the last few days, marked by severe weather.

How to explain these stormy episodes? 

June is traditionally very stormy.

The latest record dates from last year when more than 170,000 lightning strikes on the ground were recorded.

And it was Île-de-France which was the region most affected with this stormy wave that we are going through at the moment.

This record should be broken.

Risk of hail and heavy rain

At 6 a.m. this Wednesday morning, we register 3,500 lightning strikes in the last half hour.

A very electric weather that has not finished disturbing us.

This Wednesday will be the stormiest day of the week.

Over the rest of the country, the sky will remain threatening with showers and a risk of thunderstorms.

Stormy activity could still be strong locally with a risk of hail and heavy rains in a short time, especially in the center-west on Wednesday morning.

Infrequent phenomena such as tornadoes

You will have to get used to these very electric storms which are the consequence of periods of heat wave when the very hot air on the ground meets a very cold air mass at altitude.

This results in violent storms with fairly infrequent phenomena such as tornadoes which, on Saturday, claimed a victim on the coast of Calvados.
