According to the latest Météo France bulletin, major storms hit the southwest of France this Tuesday and during the night from Tuesday to Wednesday. If a lull returns this morning, it is only relative. The situation risks once again degenerating during the night from Wednesday to Thursday.

The situation is clearly improving this Wednesday. While the day before no less than 12 departments had been placed orange for thunderstorms, today, vigilance switches to yellow across all the territories concerned, announces Vigi weather France, according to its last bulletin updated at 6 o'clock.

More than 50 departments in yellow

If a clear lull should be noted compared to this Tuesday, which was particularly violent especially in Gironde, we must remain wary. The meteorological station still places 57 departments in yellow, mainly for the risk of storms, but also of rain-flooding and floods.

The particularly unstable climatic situation of recent days can therefore result in rapid and unforeseen weather changes.

Hail and tornado

As mentioned above, Gironde was hit hard by bad weather at the start of the week. Numerous images of the bad weather have circulated on social networks, such as on

This Tuesday, a tornado was observed in Oise, a department located north of the French capital.

Since the start of 2024, France has been the scene of particularly unstable weather, between monster floods in the north, but also in Occitania where several people have died or even cold waves as summer approaches.
