BBC Weather Europe: Storm set to bring ‘persistent mist and fog’ to continent

BBC Weather meteorologist Susan Powell forecast a big area of high pressure across the core of Europe. She added most of the continent will experience fine and fair weather but Scandinavia is set for wet and windy conditions.

Ms Powell said: “There is a storm that will push rain into the northern coast of Africa.

“By Tuesday we start to see it drifting further eastwards, there are quite strong winds around that weather system.

“We will see them digging down across the Aegean in the next 24 hours.

“There is a lot of fair weather on Tuesday further east for Turkey and Cyprus.

“This is also across the core of Europe with a big area of high pressure in place there will be a lot of fine weather.

“There are some areas struggling with persistent patches of mist and fog.

She added: “Further west a weather front is set to approach Portugal and Spain, creating a much wetter and winder picture from midweek onwards.

“We are also looking at quite a mobile weather system to the northwest, it will be wet and windy across Scandinavia.”

Earlier today, BBC meteorologist Carol Kirkwood forecast rain across Britain during this evening and overnight.

Ms Kirkwood added that rainfall will continue in Scotland and Northern Ireland on Tuesday.

The BBC meteorologist said: “Through this evening and overnight, our rain continues across Scotland into Northern Ireland, parts of northern England, the odd spot getting into Wales and southwest England too.

“There’ll be some clear skies and where we’ve got the clear skies, it will be cooler but it will start off cold in eastern areas, with the temperature rising as the cloud cover does come across.” 

Ms Kirkwood added: “So into tomorrow, we’ve still got all this rain across Scotland and Northern Ireland.

“Rainfall totals starting to really accumulate. Some of that getting into Cumbria and the Pennines at times.

“But to the north of that, some brighter skies. To the south of it, quite a lot of cloud, with temperatures between 9C and 13C. Then it’s going to get colder.”
