BBC weather: Europe bombarded with thunderstorms and showers ahead of Arctic freeze

BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich said Europe will experience warm temperatures on Friday and early Saturday. He added this would be shortlived as Sunday would see storms across the continent. This would then be followed by Arctic winds descending on Europe and result in a fall in temperature.

“There will be a lot of dry weather around but on the earlier satellite picture, you can see some areas of cloud on the western side of the continent.

“Some heavy showers and thunderstorms continuing throughout Friday night and on Saturday.

“We will see some rain pushing in from Portugal into the western side of Spain and a scattering of storms ahead of that.”

The BBC Weather forecaster said the southeast of Spain will see mostly dry weather over the weekend despite the heavy rain elsewhere in the country.

Mr Rich said that on Saturday temperatures across Europe will be above 20C with many countries reaching 24C.

He continued: “On Saturday afternoon 24C in Paris and London so still relatively warm here but with some thunderstorms in the afternoon for France.

“We will also see some snow pushing into Scandinavia and certainly northern parts of Norway.

“It will be predominately dry across these eastern European areas as well on Saturday.

The weather forecaster explained on Sunday the weather across Europe will become increasingly wet.

He added Arctic winds will force temperatures to begin to fall across the continent.

Mr Rich continued: “On Sunday we see things turn increasingly unsettled.

“There will be some very heavy rain at this stage for northern Spain, France and some showers and storms getting into Germany as well.

“Meanwhile, to the north some much colder air starting to dig its way in.

“So there will be a big drop in the temperature for London and that colder air will eventually reach Paris.

As we begin the new week, both London and Paris will see a temperature high of 12C due to the Arctic air.
