Meteo France has just placed five departments in the Paris region, including the Seine-et-Marne, which is on alert in the heat wave.
A heat wave is expected in France this week.
In Ile-de-France, temperatures are high in Paris-Petite Couronne and Seine-et-Marne. The maximum temperatures recorded this Sunday 23rd June at 3pm are 30 ° C in the Luxembourg Garden, 29 ° C in Nemours, and 28 ° C in Paris-Montsouris and Fontainebleau.
Not less than 19 ° C at night
The rise of hot air from the Sahara will generate, this afternoon, a continuous rise in maximum temperatures. The maximum temperatures will first be between 32 and 35 ° C. They will reach mid-week up to 38 to 40 ° C in the warmest of the episode.
The nights will also be warm with temperatures that will not drop below 18 or 19 ° C.
In this context, Paris and Seine-et-Marne were placed in an orange alert.
