BBC Weather: Thundery showers to batter Europe as snow and rain risk flooding

BBC Weather: Europe set for ‘unsettled conditions’

BBC Weather forecaster Darren Bett warned of flooding across Europe following heavy rain and snow. He insisted that wet weather will be moving across Europe from the Atlantic and could cause disruption going into the new week. Eastern parts of Europe may also see thundershowers while Scandinavia can expect more snow and brutally cold temperatures.

Mr Bett said: “It is going to stay cold across Scandinavia over the next few days.

“For many other parts of Europe is mainly unsettled and a rather messy satellite picture.

“We have got areas of low pressure and cloud sweeping in eastwards across more southern parts of Europe at the moment.

“That eastern band of wet weather is moving in to eastern areas of Europe further.

“More wind and rain will be sweeping in across France and threatening some more flooding.

“We will also see some more snow, over the northern side of the Alps in particular.”

The BBC Weather forecaster said the band of wet weather close to Turkey could turn into thundery downpours.

Temperatures will remain considerably cold for parts of Scandinavia and while cold, it will be dry in parts of central-eastern Europe.

Mr Bett said: “This rain hear could be heavy and thundery as it moves away.

“It should also be quite sunny across much of Germany and Poland but it is cold.

“There will be some heavier snow moving away from Romania into Ukraine.

“Those temperatures will again be below average for many parts of Scandinavia.”

Mr Bett closed by saying: “It should be dry across parts of the Mediterranean and southern parts of Iberia.

“There is some mild Atlantic air and wetter weather coming into the southern half of the UK.

“It will cut across France as well but that milder air does not really reach Germany.
