Ce week-end les températures vont baisser sensiblement avec le retour de la #neige sur l’ensemble du relief, parfois à basse altitude. Temps très perturbé également dans le Sud-Est (#Corse comprise) avec une probable aggravation lundi. pic.twitter.com/MZ2h8FNoCp

The temperatures will not exceed 10 degrees in Normandy this weekend. The polar air has invaded the British Isles since this Friday and began to reach the Channel coast. A northeasterly wind, already present Saturday, will strengthen Sunday and accentuate this feeling of freshness.
Il semblerait que le #froid arrive par le nord ce week-end, selon les dires d’un prévisionniste croisé tout à l’heure dans la rue (il portait un bonnet).
