The milder temperatures of the last days should increase even more on Saturday and Sunday in the Jura, where we expect up to 16 to 17 ° C in the plain. Mountain areas will also benefit from this wave of softness brought by a Moroccan air mass, “with more than 10 ° C”, says Christophe Mertz, meteorologist at Météo News.
The south wind, which is currently affecting the Val de Saône and reaches 70 km / h (85 km / h recorded at the Dole Tavaux station on Thursday at 17 hours), could once again carry Saharan sand, “without ‘ inform this time, in the absence of rain that makes it go down to the ground “, specifies the expert.
This flow (with another 40 km / h planned for Saturday), associated with milder temperatures, will of course reduce the snow cover a little more at altitude.
More than 20 ° C difference in 48 hours
“We should stay above season values at least until Wednesday,” warns Christophe Mertz. This contrasts with the strong morning frosts last weekend, which had caused a significant difference in temperatures at the beginning of the week, even at low altitudes.
“At Dole, we went from -9 ° C on Sunday morning to 13.6 ° C on Tuesday afternoon, a difference of 23 ° C in 48 hours” In the coming days, therefore, softness will prevail and Showers Come back immediately.
“The dry weather is going to last a long time. We will be in high pressure conditions until the beginning of March. “
