Hehe, Ian ! Early this morning, it was 18.9C, the lowest minimum so far, for August.

The winds turned, and the hot air mass went eastwards.

It has been hot today, too, but this is only because of the westerlies (remember that there are mountains, to the West, so a light Foehn effect has done its job). Hot, but dry, so very pleasant.

A stormy start of day today in Nice, now with continuous rain. Still warm.

Corsica is currently under ORANGE alert due to the storms and to some locally heavy precipitations.

All I can say it was HOT HOT HOT in the Paris region on Saturday (4th) [hehe]

Car showed 41deg in the sun, and those thermometers you get on the pharmacy signs all had 30-33deg showing.

There was one heck of a thunderstorm in the evening as well (approx 19h). One crack of lightening/thunder made the building vibrate. :D :D

Strong wind in the Mediterranean today (particularly in the Rhone valley, coastal Provence, Marseilles and Cape Corsica).

Some gusts went up to 183 km/h at Cape Sagro (Corsica) !

On the Riviera, the wind coming from the West is synonym of warmth/heat due to the Foehn effect. 25 to 28°C in this region, and only in this region today.

France is about to break into a long period of sunny and warm weather, which could last for (at least!) one week.

The indian summer will be present on the whole territory (each region with its own sauce, ie. 20/22°C in the NW, 25/27°C in the NE, 28/30°C in the South).

For a large part of northern France, September 2011 will be warmer than July 2011, a rare event.

France has experienced a summer-like spring and is likely to see a summer-like autumn (at least the first part of the season).

North of France was very warm today, almost as warm as the South.

North :
27.3°C at Vichy,
27.2°C at Auxerre,
27.0°C at Bourges,
25.3°C at Strasbourg,
25/26°C in the Paris area.

The whole country will be very sunny and even warmer (!) during the next days, at least till 2nd/3rd October !

Amazing temperatures in France yesterday, especially in North Brittany, in which Brignogan has beaten its own September record, with 28.9°C !

In North Cotentin, the Pointe de la Hague is currently 21°C this morning, incredible !

29th September, one of the classic days of this early autumn warm period, which one is not classic and rather exceptional :

A review of the 22 Metropolitan Regions' very own high extremes :

SW is the hottest, NE is the least warm.

Surprised it wasnt warmer actually there, in the low 30s,given Kew reached 28.8C here ; just shows the limit of solar radiation heating at this time of year..

I agree Dave. Besides, there wasn't that much difference between inside Brittany and inside Aquitaine yesterday, as we can see in the above table.
Indeed, that "just shows the limit of solar radiation heating at this time of year", as you said.

But, 32.0°C is high all the same, even for the SW. The day before, the SW hit 33.2°C at its maximum. We can also say that the hot air mass moved a little northward, allowing the UK to be even a little warmer than the day before, and permitting the UK and the SW of France to be closer in terms of temperatures.

If I remember well, highest for late Sep./early Oct. in France is about 35°C, but certainly with the help of the foehn effect.

Thanks for your comment. :)
