Over Corsica, the Var and the Maritime Alps, the stormy rains will persist until Saturday evening and will be accompanied by hail and strong gusts of wind.
The weather on Saturday will remain unstable and rainy in most regions and particularly in the South-East, but only two departments of the central massif remain vigilant orange, for a risk of floods. Meteo France maintains, on Saturday 13 June, its warning for two departments, Haute-Loire and Puy-de-Dôme, due to a “risk of significant flooding of the Allier brivadois”.

The orange vigilance measures, for rain-flood, thunderstorms or floods, concerned 16 departments since Friday at 4 p.m. Over the South East, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Franche-Comté, Lorraine and Alsace, a few locally stormy showers circulated in the morning, and already some more sustained thunderstorms over Provence.
In the afternoon, thunderstorm precipitation will intensify on the eastern side of the country, from the Mediterranean to the German border. Over Corsica, the Var and the Maritime Alps, thunderstorm rains will persist until evening and will be locally strong with hail and strong gusts of wind.
The weather will also be humid from Normandy and Brittany, the Pays-de-la-Loire, Poitou-Charentes, northern Aquitaine and the Pyrenees, with frequent showers, sometimes accompanied by thunderclaps. Elsewhere, the showers will be rarer and isolated under a variable sky.
