Chris Fawkes outlined that thunderstorms will be seen in a number of areas throughout Europe over the next few days. The BBC meteorologist highlighted a batch of storms spreading into Germany, Switzerland and Austria that will continue to extend eastwards at the beginning of the coming week.

Mr Fawkes said: “We have got a few areas of thunderstorms in Europe forecast over the next few days.

“There is one area of storms working across the Mediterranean towards Italy.

“We have got another batch of storms into Germany, parts of Switzerland and Austria.

“These storms are going to gradually extend eastwards as we go between Monday.

“Thunderstorms will break out more widely across the Balkans stretching to the most northern areas of Greece.

“It should stay dry in Athens and hotter than in recent days with temperatures up to 31C.”

The BBC’s long-range forecast Monday 14 to Sunday, June 20, outlines above-average temperatures and warm weather.

The BBC wrote: “High pressure that builds in strongly towards the end of next week should begin a slow westward trek in mid-June, gradually shifting away from the UK and into the North Atlantic.

“Mid-June is likely to remain warmer and drier than normal for a time as high pressure lingers near enough to deflect weather fronts.

“Temperatures are likely to be above average for most and may be slightly warmer than we expect for next week.

“Low pressure will be deepening in north east Europe during the middle of June, bringing some cooler and wetter weather there.

“This should stay well to the east of us for a while, but it is being held there by the high pressure over the UK.”

The forecast continued: “Once our high begins to shift west, the cooler and wetter weather will spread in from the east.

“This may happen sometime in the second half of the week or hold off until a bit later in June.

“These warm summertime highs tend to be slow to move around, so it could take several days for the high to move far enough away that we see a change in the weather pattern.

“There is also a risk, about a 30 percent chance of occurrence, that high pressure stays overhead or slightly east of us well into July, keeping things warm, dry, and settled for the next several weeks.”
