Meteo France has placed the day of Sunday in orange alert for thunderstorms and floods in 12 departments. The Ardennes, Aube, Marne, Haute-Marne, Meurthe-et-Moselle, Meuse, Moselle, Haute-Saone and Vosges were placed in vigilance “storms”. The Corrèze , the  Lot and the  Tarn-et-Garonne are for their vigilance orange “rain-flood” .

The weather operator predicts possible floods in “usually floodable areas” and “unusual floods of streams and ditches” as well as a “risk of overflow of sewerage systems”. It also indicates possible disturbances of road and rail traffic on these departments.

The equivalent of 2 to 3 weeks of rain

At the end of the night from Saturday to Sunday, a rainy-stormy degradation is set up by the Pyrenees up to the Limousin and should give precipitation locally of the order of 20 to 30 mm / h, indicates the weather operator.



“The expected accumulations are often of the order of 50 mm (or liters / m²) to 60 mm in 24h, which is usually about 2 to 3 weeks of rain in this season,” says Meteo France.
Precipitation is expected to decline in the west Sunday evening.
