Ten departments in orange vigilance for “rain-flood” or “floods”


Heavy rains continue this Thursday in the east of the country. Ten departments have been placed in orange vigilance by Météo-France. Orange “rain-flood” vigilance is underway in Haute-Marne, Haute-Saône, Doubs and Jura, due to a new “heavy rain” episode, “unusual for the season, involving large areas”. The Aisne, the Ardennes, the Marne, the Meuse, the Meurthe-et-Moselle and the Vosges are on orange alert for floods. The measure is lifted for six other departments (Meurthe-et-Moselle, Meuse, Moselle, Bas-Rhin, Vosges and Territoire-de-Belfort).

The new rainy episode is “worrying” because “it occurs 24 hours after an already significant rainy episode, on saturated soils, accentuating runoff phenomena”, writes the institute. For example, in Franche-Comté, 40 to 70 mm of rain already fell on Tuesday in 24 hours.

Start of calm in the afternoon

In the morning, heavy rains will continue in the departments placed in orange vigilance, with weaker intensities in the afternoon. The lull observed in the north will then continue its slow progression towards the south. For Haute-Marne and Haute-Saône, it will be necessary to wait until this afternoon for the rains to decrease. In the Doubs and Jura, the return to calm should not take place before Thursday night to Friday.

Elsewhere, the sky will still be quite cloudy with a few showers. However in the afternoon, clearings will develop in the plains of the Southwest. In the morning, temperatures will range from 10 to 17 degrees, up to 18 to 21 degrees near the Mediterranean. In the afternoon, it will be 17 to 26 degrees in most areas, up to 27 to 31 degrees around the Big Blue.
