Thunderstorms push into eastern Europe
A dry, fine and hot day for Spain and Portugal. Dry and fine too for the Balearics. A few showers developing across Sardinia and Corsica with local thunderstorms popping up across central and southern Italy. A dry and hot day for Greece and Turkey.
Largely dry and fine for France although a few showers will affect the eastern regions. Dry and sunny for the Low Countries but with a cooling sea breeze here again. Much of Germany will be dry with lengthy spells of sunshine, although southern areas will see developing thundery showers. Sunshine and showers for Switzerland and slightly more cloud cover with heavier showers across Austria. Thunderstorms developing down the Balkan States too.
Heavy showers and or longer spells of rain are affecting northern and western parts of Norway, while Sweden looks to remain mostly dry, although one or two showers could affect central areas later on. Largely dry for Finland although rather cloudy. A few showers, some heavy and possibly thundery, affecting the Baltic States still. Denmark again will see dry conditions and good spells of sunshine.
Another dry, fine and hot day for Spain, Portugal and the Balearics. Less of a shower risk across Sardinia and Corsica, although the odd isolated shower cannot be completely ruled out here. Scattered thundery and heavy showers across central and southern Italy as well as Sicily. Parts of Greece may too see a few thunderstorms. Dry and hot for Turkey.
Largely dry and fine for France, although a few showers could still affect the far southeast region. Mainly dry for the Low Countries but with some showers about later. Largely dry for Germany but again a few scattered showers are expected. Showers across the Alps but also sunny spells. Thunderstorms and heavy rain for parts of the Balkans and Hungary. Largely dry for Poland but thunderstorms furthest south here.
Some showery rain still affecting northern Norway but drier further south. A few scattered showers across Sweden and Finland, mainly further north, but largely dry elsewhere. The odd shower for the Baltic States but mostly dry. There is a risk of a few showers across Denmark but sunny spells and dry conditions too.
