Weather forecast: snowflakes as far as the plains and in Ile-de-France

As expected, the snow made its arrival in the plains this weekend. All the mountain ranges of the country are affected by the chain of winter disturbances. But for the first time in the cold season, snowflakes reach the plains and can temporarily hold onto the ground.

Météo France also places a very large part of the territory in yellow vigilance (level 2 out of 4) for snow and ice. Only the west and the edges of the Mediterranean are spared. But in Brittany and along the Channel coasts, winter conditions result in a strong wind, depriving several thousand homes of electricity, as reported by France Bleu.

For Sunday, Météo France estimates that it will be the New Aquitaine, Occitanie and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes regions that will be the most exposed to snow and ice. In Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Occitanie, these are the mountainous regions that will be affected.

This Saturday morning, snow showers covered part of the ground in the Grand Est region.

The flakes also reached the departments of Orne, in the West, and Somme, in the North.

The Oise and, further north, the region of Lille were also concerned.

From 6 a.m., the soils also started to whiten in some parts of Ile-de-France as shown in this radar animation provided by The weather channel and where the snow appears in pink.

When arriving in Seine-et-Marne, the snowfall became more massive, throughout the department.

At Disneyland Paris Park located in the north of Seine-et-Marne, snowflakes greeted the visitors of the day.

As the day progresses, with warmer temperatures, snow showers should turn to rain.
