Most of Brittany and Normandy in north western France remained on alert for violent storms on Thursday, as the warnings were lifted for the south west of the country.

While the south west of France can relax most of the north west should expect some rough weather on Thursday, with storm warnings in place for 14 départements.

The “Vigilance Orange” – France's second highest level of weather warning – remains in place for the five départements of Basse and Haute Normandie, as well as in Loire-Atlantique, Maine-et-Loire, Finistère, Côtes-d'Armor and the Somme and Pas de Calais.

The public are advised to be vigilant and the country's weather agency Météo France says the storms “could be violent on a local scale and see hailstones, strong winds and sudden heavy downpours.”

The storms should pass by around the middle of the day.
