16-20 August thunderstorm chances

Thundery conditions have returned to France yesterday. No organised system has developed however, and conditions were very cloudy. Tomorrow (Thu-Fri) night this could change, with models expecting relatively clear conditions over Pic du Midi (after 00 UTC) and a storm complex moving from the Massif Central into Germany during the night. Mont Aigoual likely would be covered by clouds, unfortunately.
The days after this the chances of storms remain till Monday, but whether anything organised and observable would occur remains to be seen. There is a chance of nocturnal storms growing over northern Spain in the night of Friday-Saturday.
