The capital of Anjou is maybe facing the coldest period of the year. After a snowfall a the very end of January, followed by a drop in temperatures with Russian wind, the night between Saturday and Sunday will see the continuation of a thermometer below zero and new snowfall. According to weather forecasts, the layer of snow will reach between 4 and 9 cm on Angers province on Sunday morning. The fall could last from Saurday night to Sunday noon.

Two difficulties may occur. First the traffic could slow down and even be more dangerous. In order to prevent accidents, Angers and Maine et Loire authorities are preparing teams and materials to make the roads more secure. Another difficulty could come from homeless people, endangered by the cold. For these, he danger is real because the cold makes these people drowsy. So on that field, police officers, firefighters and rescuers of civil safety could have to monitor the endangered people. And a special phone number (115) is dedicated to immediate help.

Snowfall is a quite scarce meteorological phenomena in the area : there are no more than 7 days of snow per year in Angers area according to meteorological statistics. After temperatures of 2 below zero on Saturday evening and during the night, the thermometer will range around zero on the days to come.
