BBC Weather: Europe forecast MORE snow and 'torrential rainfall' as weather system hits

Weather forecaster Alina Jenkins claimed there was more “torrential rain to come” for parts of Italy this week.

BBC’s Jenkins also warned that mountainous parts of northern Spain and the Alps would see snowfall.

Despite above average temperatures for many parts of Europe, central and southern Europe are at risk of unsettled weather on Monday and Tuesday.

BBC Weather forecaster Jenkins said: “I am sure you have been hearing about the torrential rain and severe flooding across Italy. It is all tied in with an area of low pressure.

“You can see it quite clearly here on the earlier satellite picture list swirling around.

“Now, while this area of low pressure is filling, we are not out of the woods yet, there is more torrential rain to come across parts of Italy, through Monday and Tuesday, and also some unsettled weather for southern parts of France, and northeastern parts of Spain.”

The BBC Weather forecaster added: “Across to Cyprus, Greece, Turkey, dry with a good deal of sunshine to start the new week.

“Some thundery showers in the Ionian and Adriatic Seas. Those showers continue across Italy, southern parts of France, northern and eastern parts of Spain likely to see some snow for the Pyrenees. Some snow as well for the French and Italian Alps.

“It’s westerly winds across Iberia so it is a cooler feel here. Elsewhere across Europe, it is a southerly wind, so their temperatures are well above average for the time of year.

“But, it stays unsettled across central, southern, parts on into Tuesday, further torrential rain for northern Italy, and yes again further snow for the French and Italian Alps and across the Pyrenees as well.”

Last week parts of northern were bombarded by powerful gusts and heavy rainfall promoting severe flooding in Venice.

Officials claimed that at one point 75 percent of Venice was submerged under water.

The dangerous weather closed schools and tourist sites in certain regions, killing a least 11 people across the country.

With unsettled weather across Europe forecast, and Britain facing an unsettled week with rainy weather, leading bookmaker Coral has slashed odds on this month to be the wettest on record.

Coral's Harry Aitkenhead said: “It's been a stormy start to November and the amount of rain we've seen in the first few days means this month now has a real chance of entering the record books as the wettest we have ever seen.”
