It might be the middle of October with Halloween approaching but summer will make a dramatic and perhaps welcome return this weekend as temperatures rise to 10C above the seasonal norm.

Temperatures could reach as high as 32C in the south west of France this weekend as the sun makes an unseasonal return.

Parisians too will be able to take to the parks with the mercury forecast to reach 25C in the French capital, according to Météo France.

Temperatures were set to rise on Friday and were forecast to reach 30C in the south west, 24C in the south east and 22C in the north of the country.

But Saturday will feel like Summer has returned with the mercury forecast to reach between 27C and 30C in the south west and the mid 20s in central and eastern France.

But Sunday will be the warmest day as Météo France predicts temperatures will rise to between 7C and 10C above the seasonal norm.

That means those living in the south west might bask in 32C sunshine while the French capital will be a slightly cooler 25C on Sunday.

People in France are advised to make the most of the sun as temperatures will drop steeply on Monday and autumn will feel a little bit more mike autumn.

Météo France.

Météo France has placed five départements in south west France – Pyrénées-Atlantiques, Landes, Hautes-Pyrénées, Haute-Garonne and Ariège – on a red weather alert for heavy rains and flooding.

Extremely heavy rainstorms have hit the area, with a band of storm clouds travelling along the Pyrenees, bringing the risk of avalanches in the mountains and flooding in lowland areas.

The neighbouring département of Pyrénées-Orientale is on orange alert, along with the principality of Andorra. In the north, Aisne is also on orange alert for heavy rain.

Heavy rain is expected to continue throughout Monday, gradually easing off towards the evening, although the flood alerts remain in place until Tuesday.
