Storm Felix to unleash strong wind, rain across France on Monday
The recent stormy weather pattern, which included Storm Emma, will continue through Monday as another powerful storm targets France.
This storm, dubbed Storm Felix by the State Meteorological Agency of Spain, could bring similar impacts as Storm Emma as strong winds and locally heavy rain crosses France.
"Felix is going to bring numerous weather impacts to parts France through Monday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.
The worst of the storm will be felt across western and southern portions of the country. These areas will have the most widespread rainfall and highest wind gusts.
Wind gusts along the west coast of France and in southwestern areas could reach 80 km/h (50 mph). This will be strong enough to down some trees and power lines, leading to the risk of power outages.
Nantes and Toulouse are among communities that will have these higher winds. In addition to the threat of power outages, air and rail delays are possible.
While the wind is not expected to be as strong, Paris will also have a windy day as winds gust to 65 km/h (40 mph). This could be strong enough to toss loose lawn furniture.
In addition to the rain, locally heavy rain will soak portions of the country. In western areas from Pays de la Loire to Aquitaine, local rainfall totals could near 25-50 mm (1-2 inches). This would cause a rapid rise in smaller streams and raise the threat for flooding in low-lying areas.
Although widespread flooding is not expected, rain could lead to widespread travel delays.
Across northern and eastern France, thundershowers are expected which could bring impacts to any outdoor activities. Once thunder is heard, take shelter indoors.
Drier weather will return across France for the middle of the week. Rain, however, can make a return to many areas during the second half of the week.
