Very hot weather is expected throughout France this week, with three-quarters of the country experiencing temperatures of at least 35 degrees, and a peak of 40 in the south-east. On Tuesday, 39 degrees was reached near Bordeaux and 36 at Toulouse.

Several French departments have been placed on alert. In metropolitan areas temperatures will not drop below 20 degrees. This period of canicule is expected to come to an end this weekend.

During a heatwave, the Monaco government website recommends drinking “at least 1.5 litre of water every day and to avoid drinking alcohol, coffee, tea and fizzy or sugary drinks, as these can cause dehydration.” They also remind residents to call the Emergency Unit at Princess Grace Hospital on 97 98 99 00 in case of assistance during periods of very hot weather.
