Anyone in Paris who can tell me about the weather NOW?

The weather sites seem so widely divergent, I'd like to get the straight scoop from someone who's there! Which windbreaker should I bring—the lightweight one or the one with a little lining? (I'm sure it'll rain--it's the temperature I'm more concerned about!)

Even if someone tells you about the weather now, it will change tomorrow. Take the lightweight windbraker and lots to layer underneath. The weather in Paris is very changeable and you have to be prepared for everything. Layers are the best bet.

This afternoon i was talking with my sister that lives in Mejannes le Clap a small village near Uzes.
She told that is already very warm there and people are afraid that is going to be another hot summer..
Paris weather is very voluble Sue, just be prepared everything is possible in Paris where the weather is concerned.

I am in Paris. Today it was mid 70s and is currently 59 at 12:30 am. Tomorrow it is supposed to get up to 82 during the day and a low around 59 again. Sat and sunday it is supposed to be a high of 77. That is according to the French weather that I watched this evening.

Thank you, Morgan. That should help LVSue with her windbreaker issues.

It does. Except that it shows next week dropping drastically to the 60s! mamc is right--I just have to layer. Will bring a lightweight fleece, though internal thermostat is always on high!

You can go to accuweather.com and it will give a forcast out as far as 15 days. I don't hoe accurate it can be, but at least you will have something.

I've been in Paris twice in the past four months and there is no accurate forecast as far as I can tell. In December when it was bitterly cold and dreary, the cable channels in Paris would show 43F and partly sunny. Like others have said, just be prepared for anything.

I've put the winter coat away, but not too far away, just in case. If the worst comes -- record highs, or lows, think of it as memorable. Also, they do sell clothes here.

Yes, but teeny, tiny little clothes!

Au Paradis des Rondes, 201 rue du Faubourg St. Antoine, 11th arrondissment.

Cute stuff in the window, and it's ample.

....how 'bout NOW!?!?!?!

I agree with the other posters. The weather varies too much. Just be prepared. Layers and something for the wind on top will keep you prepared.

Thanks, all. I printed up Accuweather for the week and copied down your address, Dave. Nothing like overthinking!
