Ice and snow alerts as the cold hits France


The meteorological winter began on Tuesday December 1, marking the start of the colder months of the year, with low temperatures in France.
And this bad weather is expected to continue at least until the end of the week.

Ten departments are now placed on yellow alert for snow and ice. They are: Ariège, Aude, Aveyron, Cantal, Corrèze, Creuse, Haute-Loire, Loire, Puy-de-Dôme and Tarn.

Three other departments have been put on yellow alert for storms: the Alpes-Maritimes, Haute-Corse and Var.

On Monday, northeastern France experienced freezing rains and low temperatures.

The forecaster Météo France indicates that the temperatures of Wednesday will be lower than seasonal norms and that there will be an “imposing cloud over the southwest”.

This will be accompanied by scattered rains over northwestern France and western Brittany, and snowfall over the Pyrenees and the Massif Central.

From Thursday, it will rain throughout the country, except in the Mediterranean basin, “where the weather is still very sunny”, specifies Météo France.

However, he warns that there could be strong winds there.
