Short, but sometimes violent gales

According to Météo-France, these "brief but sometimes violent gales require particular vigilance in a context of saturated soils". Behind the disturbance, an active shower regime may also bring strong wind gusts, especially along the coasts. The orange wind alert will be in effect Saturday from 21 p.m. and should be lifted Sunday at 04 a.m., says Météo-France.
