Fierce winds for the French Riviera

The Côte d’Azur is on yellow alert today due to the 90km/h winds expected right along the coast. The Var and the stretch between Antibes to Cannes will be most affected.

Until 3pm, the French Riviera will remain under the Météo France warnings. Sunshine is forecast to return briefly in the later afternoon before the clouds roll in again. 

Temperatures are likely to stick at around 14°C on the coast, but fall several degrees lower further inland. In the mountainous regions of the south of France, avalanche warnings have been put in place following flurries and dumps of snow over the weekend.
