BBC Weather: Europe WARNED 'it's going downhill' as 'NASTY' storms strike continent

Weather forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker warned it is “going downhill” across many western parts of Europe on Tuesday and over the coming days. He said: “In the UK recently it has been very warm – 25C and it is cooling off now. A lot of cloud across France.” Mr Schafernaker said it will remain unsettled across Portugal and Spain following days of “really bad” weather conditions.

He added: “The temperatures have been disappointing and further heavy showers to come mid-week.

“Also, some nasty weather there across parts of the Alps as well for strong winds in places.”

But the other side of the Mediterranean is set to remain “relatively quiet” for Greece, the Greek islands, much of the Balkans and the bulk of Italy.

Mr Schafernaker continued: “But look at this mess here across most of Iberia, into France and the UK. There will be some thunderstorms around here as well.

“But across much of Scandinavia and central Europe for the time being the weather looks absolutely fine. Berlin, around 24C.”

The BBC Weather forecaster warned on Thursday there will be a “distinct difference” between the weather in the west of Europe and the eastern half of Europe.

He added: “Hot sunshine there for Warsaw and Berlin. But cool, unsettled and breezy with further spells of weather fronts moving in off the Atlantic in the coming days.

“So, you can see in London it stays unsettled, down to 12C by Saturday. Rome, however, some sunshine in the forecast here for you.”

The has also forecast “severe thunderstorms, torrential rain and large hailstones” for the end of Wednesday across the UK.

Britain is braced for a “thundery breakdown” accompanied by hail and torrential rainfall.

The Met Office warned that flashes of lightning are also possible in the southwest and south Wales.

Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern said: “Many places start dry but we are unlikely to end dry because there is a thundery breakdown on the way.

“Initially thunderstorms in the southwest of England, a drier start further north across the UK, but a lot of low cloud to begin proceedings across eastern Scotland, northeast England as well, some patchy cloud there for Northern Ireland.

“You can see how virtually everywhere starts off with dry weather but in the southwest, south Wales as well, outbreaks of rain first thing, even a few flashes of lightning possible high in the sky.

“That wet weather pushes its way into the rest of south Wales across central southern England through Wednesday morning.”

Forecasting weather conditions for later on Wednesday, the Met Office weather presenter added: “But elsewhere where we have got cloudier skies those temperatures down compared to recent days.

“As we end Wednesday afternoon the warmth across central areas likely to trigger some severe thunderstorms in places.”
