As of 9 pm Monday, arrivals at Nice-Côte d’Azur airport are showing delays up to 90 minutes, and departures are now starting to board. All SNCF service, along the Cannes-Ventimiglia line, are fifteen to thirty minutes behind schedule.
Météo-France has put Monaco and the Alpes-Maritimes on Orange Alert from 2 pm on Monday, January 8, to Tuesday, January 9, at 6 am, with heavy rain and ENE wind gusts up to 100 km/h expected.
Not only should residents of the Principality take the usual precautions to prevent falling objects, particularly from exposed balconies, but people should also be careful venturing out of doors during this period, the authorities said, as a strong swell, with waves up to 3 meters, can quickly affect seaside roads and walkways.
Forecasters warn also of flood risks, and expect at least 80mm of rain on the coast, which could reach 130mm to 140mm inland. There’s also a chance of hail.
Heavy snow, 60cm to 80cm, is expected in the Mercantour region, which could bring the risk of avalanche.
As of 1 pm, flights in and out of Nice-Côte d’Azur airport have been moderately delayed by up to 20 minutes, and SNCF train service has been relatively on schedule, with only a few delays and cancellations.
