BBC Weather Europe: ‘Blustery’ conditions and scatted showers to descend on continent

BBC meteorologist Sarah Keith-Lucas stated that despite Finland seeing its warmest November day on record earlier this week, other Scandinavian countries are set for an outpouring of rain. She added that an area of low pressure developing in the southern Mediterranean will bring showers to Turkey and Cyprus.

Ms Keith-Lucas said: “We have seen high temperatures across much of northern Europe in recent days.

“In fact, Finland saw its warmest ever November day on record.

“That warm air is now being pushed further east and we are seeing cooler conditions from the north.

“We are going to see rain develop across parts of Spain and southern France.

“This will rain stretch up to Poland as well on this frontal system.”

The BBC meteorologist continued: “There is an area of low pressure developing in the southeast Mediterranean.

“This will bring heavy rain for Cyprus and across Turkey as well.

“It will be drier in Greece and Croatia, to the north of that there will be cloud and outbreaks of rain.

“Then we are into the blustery conditions and scattered showers for the likes of Denmark, Sweden, Norway as well.”

It comes as the Met Office said Sunday night could see the mildest November temperatures on record as the remnants of tropical Storm Zeta continue to push warm air across the UK

Met Office meteorologist Luke Miall predicted temperatures of up to 17C (62.6F) on Sunday night in the south, which would break the record for the highest daily minimum temperature recorded in November since 1862.

The record was set in Eastbourne in November 2005.

Mr Miall said: “Temperatures in the south will rise overnight instead of fall, which is unusual because we have got warm air coming across.

“It’s due to ex-Tropical Storm Zeta which caused some very wet and windy weather this week.

“Some of that tropical air is still within the system – it’s travelled a long way across the Atlantic over cool waters before reaching the UK but it’s very, very moist air, so that’s the reason it’s putting these temperatures up overnight.”
