After the storms, make way for thunderstorms. Meteo France has placed the department of Manche on the yellow alert for storms, heavy rain and floods. This alert concerns the first half of the day on Thursday 5th March 2020.
Very early tomorrow morning, thunderstorms are expected. Between 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to be precise. Once this disturbance is over, heavy rains are announced throughout the department.

As very often, in this case, the yellow alert for heavy rains and floods concerns the Vire sector. But beware, fairly recent episodes have shown us that many sectors can be affected. We remember in particular the Cotentin east coast where floods had affected the cities of Siouville, Helleville and Benoîtville last June.
Another stormy episode had affected Négreville, Bricquebec, Couville or Surtainville a few weeks later. These disturbances will be accompanied by gusts of wind of up to 70 km/h .
