BBC Weather: ‘Viscous’ downpours fizzling out across Europe as continent set for sunshine

BBC Weather meteorologist Stav Danaos stated there will be settled conditions and sunshine across Europe, with showers petering out in central regions and Scandinavia. He added that northeast corner of Europe will remain cloudy with strong winds in the coming days. 

Mr Danaos said: “We have got quite a bit of dry and sunny weather to come over the next few days across the European continent.

“This is thanks to areas of high pressure.

“We have had some areas of heavy rain through eastern Europe, this is fizzling out now as it continues to move into the Baltic states and Scandinavia.

“There are still some heavy downpours in there but nowhere near as vicious as it was over central Europe.”

He added: “There is widespread sunshine over Iberia up to France and across to Italy.

“It is still nice and sunny across the southeast, though it is not quite as hot across the Balkans.

“For the northeast corner it does remain rather cloudy, with stronger winds and outbreaks of rain.

“For Friday that rain continues to push north-eastwards, it is looking dry for southern Sweden and Poland and for the Baltic states.”  

The weather in Britain at the start of next week will be dry before becoming increasingly wet and windy towards the weekend.

Although temperatures will remain mixed, forecasters are predicting warmer conditions in the south.

Commenting on the forecast between September 7-13, the BBC said: “After a potentially dry and settled start to the week, low pressure will become the dominating feature of our weather from midweek onwards.

“The second half of the week will often be wet and windy, and with temperatures likely to close to or below where they should be for this time of year.

“In fact, there is the potential for a deep area of low pressure to move right across the UK, bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

“If this were to pan out, further damage and disruption could be expected, following on from recent storms, Storm Ellen and Storm Francis.

“That being said, there is a slight chance that low pressure remains away to the west of the British Isles and over the Atlantic.

“In this scenario, it would be a much drier and calmer week, and also much warmer, with a plume of warm air pushing up from the south.”
