Weather: thunderstorms, risk of hail, heat wave and peaks at 39°C… what weather to expect this Friday in France?

This Friday, August 5, the heat wave persists in the south-east of France while thunderstorms are expected locally.

The heat wave is finally receding over a large part of the country. If it will still be very hot in the south-eastern quarter, “from the Mediterranean rim to the Rhône valley, and to the Alpine valleys, with peaks at 36/38°C, even 39°C locally”, Meteo France announces falling highs everywhere else.

Very hot in the region

They will be “between 30°C and 33°C from the South-West to the North-East”, and “below 30°C over a small North-West half of the country”.

In detail in the region, it will still be up to 36 ° C in Alès, 35 ° C in Nîmes and Béziers, or even 34 ° C in Perpignan. Elsewhere, it will not be more than 32°C.

Maximum temperatures will be between 34 and 38°C this Friday August 5th.
Meteo France

If the heat is receding in France, the storms are progressing. The Weather Channel predicts stormy episodes “over Savoie, Hautes-Alpes and Alpes-de-Haute-Provence in connection with the arrival of cold air at altitude which will destabilize the air mass and cause sometimes violent storms with heavy rains and risk of hail”.
