A rather unsettled outlook into early next week across Europe along with some severe storms in places too.
Through into Monday and mainly dry weather will prevail across north-east Europe, around Poland and some other surrounding countries. More unsettled conditions will have developed across most of Scandinavia by this point with some longer spells of rain and perhaps with some thundery downpours too across Norway, Sweden and Finland. Still cool and showery across much of Spain and Portugal, but with many central areas of Europe from France all the way across towards Germany and surrounding countries having yet another very warm and humid day with heavy downpours and perhaps severe thunderstorms too across parts of France. Little in the way of change through the Med, compared with Sunday with plenty of very warm if not hot sunshine but afternoon storms are possible, perhaps especially across the Balearics and also across Greece and Turkey.
During Tuesday and unsettled conditions prevail across much of Scandinavia where rain or showers are predicted, along with a developing cool N'ly breeze as well. These unsettled conditions will also push into more eastern areas of Europe, including Poland and surrounding areas of which will mean a change in the weather here after mainly dry conditions during previous days. Fair weather persists across the British Isles, but low pressure across much of France extending eastwards into Belgium, Switzerland and Germany does mean a further risk of some heavy and thundery downpours, perhaps with further localised severe weather too. Cool N'ly wind persists across Iberia bringing some showery weather, while much of the Med is very warm, if not hot, but with plenty of sunshine and with just a few afternoon thundery downpours in places.
