Hot weather of up to 38C is to return in France from Sunday, September 11, especially in the south, forecasters have said, due to the passing of ex-hurricane Danielle.

The south of France is expected to see especially hot conditions from September 12-14, with temperatures set to reach 33-38C in the southwest,

If 38C is reached, it will be among record-breaking levels for the month and season.

The peak is expected from Sunday, with the weather lasting until Tuesday, September 13. This is because the ex-hurricane Danielle will cause a weather depression, which will become a ‘heat pump’ over France.

Temperatures of up to 35C are expected in Landes, Bordeaux, and Tarbes, forecasters Météo Pyrénées and Météo France said, while a peak of 34C is expected in Toulouse.

Florence Vaysse, Languedoc-Roussillon manager at Météo France, confirmed to La Dépêche du Midi that there was a “high likelihood” of such high temperatures from next week, especially on September 12-14.

From Tuesday, thunderstorms are predicted, but temperatures up to 30C are still expected to remain for most of the rest of the week (although nothing as high as 34-35C).
