The driest year in France remains 1989, with a deficit of 25%. According to Météo-France, the hot weather has become more frequent in recent years: 8 of the hottest 10 years since the beginning of the 20th century are after 2010. This warming is favored by climate change of human origin.

"Very hot in the current climate, the year 2022 will become + normal + in the middle of the 21st century", concludes Météo France.
