Rainy forecasts threaten to make Easter weekend a washout

Yet another Mediterranean episode appears to be looming on the horizon, and the latest Météo France forecasts for the long Easter weekend suggest that at least two out of three of the days will be wet – very wet.

It is looking increasingly likely that Easter egg hunts and family celebrations will be forced indoors over the weekend as clouds gather over the Côte d’Azur and Météo France warns of incoming rains.

The gloomy forecast has cast a shadow over outdoor Easter plans, with the worst of the weather predicted to start around midday in the more mountainous parts of the region on Saturday 30th March. The coast will largely be spared of rain during the daytime, but the forecast still looks cloudy, with temperatures expected to reach a maximum of 15°C.

Although no serious weather alerts have been issued, unlike during the storms of early March, heavy rain is expected to fall on Saturday evening and continue falling throughout Sunday. The wind is also likely to play a factor in the stormy conditions, with gusts of up to 55km/h possible in some areas.

The bad weather will no doubt force many families to rethink their outdoor egg hunts and picnics, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that all fun is off the Easter table. A wet weekend is the perfect time to indulge in some family baking and crafting activities.

And we can look forward to the sun returning on Monday 1st April – fingers crossed!
