High pressure brings largely dry conditions, although expect some rain in western Europe and west Scandinavia.
Thundery showers for Portugal and western parts of Spain on Monday, these heaviest to the north. Staying dry and fine for eastern Spain and the Balearic Islands. Dry and sunny for Corsica, Sardinia and much of Italy though thunderstorms could flare up again over the far south of Italy and for Sicily. Mostly dry, sunny and warm for the Balkans, Greece and Turkey though one or two showers could develop over northern areas.
High pressure is centred over southern Germany on Monday keeping conditions dry, fine, warm and sunny for much of central Europe. France, Germany, the Low Countries, Switzerland, Austria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary all seeing a largely dry and fine day.
Dry, fine and sunny conditions spread into southern Scandinavia too on Monday with a dry, sunny and warm day for Denmark. Early rain clears east from the Baltic States to give a dry, sunny day here too and for Finland. Dry, warm and bright for much of Sweden as well as for eastern Norway though fronts moving in from the North and Norwegian Seas bring rain to western coastal regions of Norway.
Thundery showers push east across Spain through the morning before largely fizzling out. Largely dry elsewhere but more rain looks to push into northwest Spain and Portugal later. Cloudier skies will develop across the Balearics with the risk of a shower developing but mainly dry here. Dry for Sardinia and Corsica but thundery showers developing over Sicily as well as central and south Italy. Dry, fine and sunny for Greece and Turkey.
With high pressure still the main weather feature across central and northern Europe expect plenty of dry conditions for many. However, showers look to develop over Austria and Switzerland pushing into the far north of Italy later on. West France also looks to gain cloudier skies with some patchy rain moving in here through the day.
Largely dry across much of Sweden and Finland as well as through the Baltic States and over Denmark. Although, cloudier skies are expected across central parts of Sweden and southwest Finland later, where patchy light rain will affect these areas. Western and northern parts of Norway will see rain, some heavy at times. Drier further south and east.
