The mercury is rising across most of France on Tuesday while the west gets set for violent storms.
Scorching temperatures will hit most of France once again with Tuesday expected to be another scorcher in a summer that has been full of scorching days so far.
And while the mercury rises across most of the country, three departments in the north west of France have been placed on orange alert for violent storms.
But across most of the country people will be baking under the sun and dealing with roasting temperatures.
