Strong heat is expected again in the Rhône this week with temperatures above 35°C.
The Rhône will still suffer from the heat. Temperatures will rise again this week throughout France and the Lyon region will not be spared.
Proof of its severity, this new episode of high heat will be characterized by its duration. Scorching temperatures will set in and persist until next week.
A peak of 36°C in the middle of the week in Lyon
From the start of the week, temperatures spread upwards in the capital of Gaul. The 33°C will arrive this Monday, well above normal for the season, with a sun very present according to Météo-France.
The only good news in the Lyon area, a light northerly wind will make the atmosphere a little more breathable at the start of the week.
Until Saturday at least, the temperatures will finally be little evaluated and will remain between 34°C and 36°C at the maximum of the week this Thursday, during the expected peak in temperatures.
It will also be very difficult for nights to drop below 20°C in the Lyon area. We expect at least between 19°C and 23°C at night this week, making it difficult to cool the ground and homes.
The return to less suffocating temperatures is difficult to announce for the time being in the Metropolis of Lyon. Despite showers and thunderstorms expected from Saturday and which should persist until next Wednesday, temperatures, for their part, will still peak at high levels over this period. For example, we expect 33°C in Lyon or 32°C in Villefranche-sur-Saône this Saturday.
Météo-France reminds you of the right things to do to avoid suffering from extreme heat: stay well hydrated, limit your physical activities and avoid going out during the hottest hours of the day.
The town hall of Lyon indicates for its part that more than 600 places are open to the public in this period of strong heat, such as parks, fountains or libraries to refresh the Lyonnais seeking to escape a little from the rise in the thermometer. A map referencing the different cool places in the city is even available online to guide them.
