BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich highlighted an area of low-pressure near Turkey and up towards Ukraine. The meteorologist also outlined a northwest frontal system which is set to bring patchy rain and a band of cloud across parts of the continent.

Mr Rich said: “This area of low pressure spinning out of Turkey, across the Black Sea and up into Ukraine.

“There is some very heavy rain with that and some strong gusty winds as well.

“The frontal system to the northwest does not look like much at this stage, a band of cloud and patchy rain.

“In between just one or two showers popping up through the day, very light winds as well.

“So if you catch a shower it will be with you for quite some time.

“Most of those showers are fading into Tuesday night and Wednesday.”

He continued: “There is more generally cloudy and showery weather across the northeast of Spain and up into southern France.

“Meanwhile, across Turkey, there is still some dry weather to be had across the far east of Turkey.

“There is a scattering of showers through Romania and Bulgaria across parts of the Balkans.”

It comes as a BBC long-range weather outlook for late April 26 shows a high-pressure system over the UK.

“The temperatures will be extremely sensitive to where the high is and what sort of air the winds will blow into the UK.

“If the high is mainly to our west, we will get colder Atlantic air from near Iceland, so temperatures will tend to be below average.

“This is the outlook we prefer, which has some support for computer models too.

“If the high is too close to Iceland to our northwest, we will get Arctic air and temperatures will be well below average.”
