The weather forecast is rain over most of France except the southern regions. Toulouse will be partly sunny, partly rainy, Paris will have rain, as will Bordeaux and Lille, but Marseille and Perpignan will have some sun. Will this have an effect on voter turnout? In America, the weather is a major deterrent, but we are lazy voters. The French, typically, come out to vote. Let's hope their sense of the urgency of the crisis catapults them out of bed and to the polls early.
