The heat wave is hitting the Lyon region and its surroundings hard. As a result of the thermometer far too high for the season, the air quality is poor in Lyon this Wednesday, June 15.

The heat is slowly setting in in the south-eastern quarter of France and in Lyon. The Atmo laboratory predicts poor air quality between Rhône and Saône and in several municipalities in the region this Wednesday, June 15. The raindrops and thunderstorms forecast by Météo France this Wednesday in all the departments of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region do nothing. Lyon remains in the red with pollution rates that present the thresholds.

Degraded to poor air quality in the region

According to the Atmo Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes observatory, which specializes in air quality in the region, “weather conditions will remain favorable for the production of photochemical ozone” this Wednesday, June 15. It remains measured all the same: with “a shift of the wind to a southerly flow […] gusty weather and the possible formation of thunderstorm cover, ozone levels are expected to increase only moderately“.

However, at the regional level, “degraded to poor air quality is […] planned in the territory“.
