Despite the presence of a pleasant morning sun, a stormy degradation affected the South-West and it was not to spare our department before this wave shifts towards Corrèze and the Massif Central.

This could lead to significant accumulations in the event of “a succession of thunderstorm lines or under a thunderstorm, locally 30/50 mm or even 70 mm very locally (and this, in a short time)”.

Hail falls that can be strong locally cannot be ruled out, as can gusts of wind ranging from 60 to 80 km / h.

At the time of our closure, the storm and the rain had already invaded the Marmandais and in particular Casteljaloux.
