The Frederico depression which crossed northern France on Thursday quickly evacuated over Central Europe. In its wake, it caused another episode of violent winds this Friday morning in Corsica. On the flood front, the trend is towards calm under the effect of a small anticyclonic surge.
This Friday at 8 a.m.:
There were violent winds on Cape Corsica with 144 km/h at Cagnano (2B), 140 km/h at Cap Sagro (2B). We also observed 112 km/h on the Rousse Island in Balagne, 102 km/h in Calacuccia.
Regarding the strong wind episode
This Friday, the wind gradually decreases in intensity in Corsica. In the morning, gusts still reach 100 to 130-140 km/h from Balagne to Cap Corse and 90-110 km/h on the crests of the Corsican mountains. The wind loses its intensity from midday and this special strong wind announcement may be lifted.
Concerning floods and floods
This Friday is a day of calm, conducive to the decline or stabilization of the watercourses of Nord-Pas-de Calais and the center-west. On Saturday, a new ocean disturbance will bring moderate rain and wind to Nord-Pas-de-Calais. We expect around ten millimeters during the day with moderate reactions from the rivers. The floods should not have significant consequences although the situation should be monitored closely given the water saturation of the soil.
