Forecast for July 18-23 (Tue-Sun)

Tomorrow looks very good for observations from Mont Aigoual (ideal position given where the storms should occur (west of Toulouse, north of Pic du Midi, to Bordeaux)
There is no permanent camera there but the group in Toulouse (Serge Soula, Oscar van der Velde, Aglika Savtchenko) will go there with their camera.

Also, the nights after have some chance of nocturnal storms.
An overview of precip by the GFS model:

Tue-Wed night: northern Spain/Biscay (some/good chance)
Wed-Thu night: southwest to northwestern France (very good chance)
Thu-Fri night: northern/central France (some chance)
Fri-Sat night: northwestern half of France (good chance)
Sat-Sun night: eastern half of France (good chance)

The Wed-Thu and Fri-Sat seem the best, associated with the more dynamic systems.

For Pic du Midi, the cases in the western part of France could mean cloudiness to limit the observations, but Mont Aigoual should be better place in that respect.
Olivier detected a problem with the pan-tilt system of the camera on Pic du Midi. We hope to have it solved soon...
