During the day of Monday, “the showers can give accumulations of 100 to 150 mm locally 180 mm on the southern slopes of the alpine and Corsican terrain”, continues Météo France, adding that “floods are possible”.
In addition, the rise in sea level could “engender submersions on the lower or vulnerable parts of the coast of southern Corsica (mainly the Gulf of Ajaccio) and the Alpes-Maritimes”.
