THIS month has been one of the hottest Octobers since 1900, according to Météo-France.

Average temperatures across the whole country were 2C above the typical 11.5C.

With the exception of a cold spell around the 10th-13th, temperatures across the whole of France have been warmer than usual.

The weather forecaster said this was particularly noticeable with minimum temperatures.

Météo-France said it was the sixth hottest October since 1900 – and pointed out that four of the five previous hottest Octobers have occurred since 1990 (1995, 2001, 2005, 2006), the other being 1921.

The month’s rainfall was also 10% above average, except in Corsica and around the Mediterranean.

Rainy weather is the overall pattern for the country in the coming days, with bands of raining moving north to south.
