France had the hottest October since 1945

Published on:

October 2022 is expected to be the hottest October in France since records began in 1945, the national weather agency Météo-France said in a statement.

With an average temperature near or even just above 17 degrees Celsius (63 Fahrenheit) – three to four degrees above normal levels – last month was much warmer than the previous record high in October 2001, when average temperatures were 16.3°C.

The second half of the month saw an unusually long and intense period of unusually high temperatures, with the southwestern city of Bordeaux registering the last 30C since records began on October 16.

Météo-France said that due to climate change, periods of unusual heat at the end or beginning of the year would become more frequent.

Beach resorts across Europe have extended their season as the off-season heat has pushed tourists to come to the seaside.
