BBC Weather: Europe set for ‘late-season heat’ before heavy rain descends on continent

BBC Weather meteorologist Ben Rich stated there will be cooler conditions across much of Europe, with southern regions remaining warm over the next two days. Mr Rich warned of a band of rain pushing towards Scandinavia, which is expected to bring heavy rain to Norway.  

Mr Rich said: “There is some late season heat to be found at the moment towards the southeast of Europe.

“A frontal system sliding its way eastwards will eventually introduce cooler air even into those eastern and south-eastern parts of Europe which during Wednesday will remain very hot.

“There is some particularly wet weather through Wednesday across the northwest of the British Isles.

“As we move out of Wednesday into Thursday that band of rain will slide its way eastwards so some heavy rain will push into Norway.”

He added: “Down towards Iberia it is fine and dry and there will still be some heat on Thursday in the southeast.

“It will warm up for a time across Spain and western Portugal.

“There is a band of rain pushing towards Scandinavia and behind that there will be some cooler conditions returning to the British Isles.”

The dry weather in Britain will remain to start the week next Monday, before coming increasingly wet and windy towards the weekend.

Although temperatures will remain mixed, forecasters are predicting warmer conditions in the south.

Commenting on the forecast between September 7-13, the BBC said: “After a potentially dry and settled start to the week, low pressure will become the dominating feature of our weather from midweek onwards.

“The second half of the week will often be wet and windy, and with temperatures likely to close to or below where they should be for this time of year.

“In fact, there is the potential for a deep area of low pressure to move right across the UK, bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

“If this were to pan out, further damage and disruption could be expected, following on from recent storms, Storm Ellen and Storm Francis.

“That being said, there is a slight chance that low pressure remains away to the west of the British Isles and over the Atlantic.

“In this scenario, it would be a much drier and calmer week, and also much warmer, with a plume of warm air pushing up from the south.”
