Wet in Spain and Portugal, mild for much of central and western Europe
Outbreaks of rain continue to affect Portugal on Thursday, whilst most of Spain remains dry and fairly warm, if quite cloudy. Dry weather extends across the western and central Mediterranean, with sunshine for Italy and the Balkans.
Dry for Greece, although a few scattered thundery showers may remain across the islands. Heavy rain for Turkey. Feeling warm in the south of France. Cloudy and a little drizzle in northern and western France. Cloudy but dry for the Low Countries and Germany, perhaps just a little drizzle here and there. Dry too for Switzerland and Austria.
Low pressure centred near the Black Sea brings rain to eastern Europe, turning increasingly to snow as it spreads back west into Poland. Dry for Scandinavia overall, apart from the odd wintry flurry in southern Sweden. A few showers around the west coast of Norway. Feeling chilly around the Baltic.
Cloud and rain affecting many parts of Spain and Portugal through Friday. Further cloud and some spots of drizzle in the Balearics. Fair for much of Italy with some sunny spells, and dry too in Greece. Heavy showers and some thunderstorms in Turkey where it will be feeling chilly too.
Rather cloudy in France with some drizzle in the west. Better for the south of France where there will be some sunshine. The Low Countries should have some sunny spells and should be dry, whilst Germany is dry and mainly bright with some sunshine. Dry too for Poland although some fog is possible here. Switzerland and Austria are likely to be dry.
A dry day in Denmark but some cloud and drizzle for the Baltic States. Dry in Finland and Sweden with Norway being dry and cool too.
