Finistère is even subject to a warning of Dangerous waves …
While the storms had so far spared Brittany, wind and waves seem to have made an appointment with the Atlantic coast at the beginning of 2016. As in recent days, Météo France has placed three of the four Breton departments in Yellow alert for thunderstorms and high winds on Monday.
The Ille-et-Vilaine spared
Brittany, Cotes d’Armor and Finistère are well supervised. The tip of Brittany is also affected by a warning of high dangerous waves. These storms should hit mid-morning and late in the day and be accompanied by heavy rain. Only the Ille-et-Vilaine is somewhat spared but will not escape the rain.
The strong wind gusts recorded at over 140 km/h in recent days have led to spectacular images on the Brittany coast, including a foam storm on the port of Saint-Guénolé (Finistère). On the night of Thursday to Friday, a Russian sailor fell overboard died off the coast of Finistère.
