BBC Weather warning: Wintry conditions to blanket Europe as brutal cold front takes hold

BBC Weather’s Nick Miller warned of a large storm system stretching across the UK, northern France and Scandinavia will bring vast amounts of rain. But by Thursday the miserable conditions will push past central Europe. Southern Europe will see sunshine with highs of 36C in Spain.

Mr Miller said: “It’s on the cooler side for many across the northern most areas in Europe and there are some weather systems giving wind and rain.

“The most recent satellite picture shows a main storm travelling across Europe as we look at the forecast going into Wednesday.

“Stronger winds and showers at least into Scandinavia will be pushing away.

“Heavy downpours in southern areas are moving away with sunny weather in Greece.

“A lot of heat in place across much of Russia at the moment but it is on the cool side for Scandinavia.

“It’s staying cold and windy and there is going to be some wintry weather into the higher elevations across parts of Norway.

“A similar picture for Thursday with some of that rain extending to Poland.

“But south of that it will stay mainly dry.”

It comes as The UK saw above-average rainfall last month – with one English village enduring its wettest June day in nearly a century.

The Met Office recorded 105.7mm of rainfall across the UK over the month, 144 percent of the June average.

England went through its driest May on record and the UK had its sunniest spring since records began in 1929.
