Heavy rain for southern Norway, moves into Sweden
Much of Spain, Portugal and southern France will be dry, sunny and warm. Some rain associated with a cold front affects the far northwest of Spain, whilst some heavier rain from this system moves east over northern France.
Areas of rain affect central Italy, although it will be drier toward the north and across Switzerland. Some showery bursts for Austria, Slovenia and Croatia. Dry, sunny and very warm for most of the Mediterranean islands, Greece and Turkey.
Fairly warm again, but further outbreaks of rain for Gerrmany, also becoming wetter for the Low Countries through the day. High pressure over eastern Europe maintains dry weather for Poland and Baltic regions. A warm southeasterly flow affects Sweden with plenty of sun. A slow-moving front brings heavy rain to southern Norway, accompanied by strong southerly winds, plus rain at times for Denmark.
Some showers around the Pyrenees, but most of Spain and Portugal will be dry and warm. Showers too for southern Italy, plus a few showers near the Alps, but north and central Italy looks mainly dry. The Mediterranean islands plus Greece and Turkey also dry with sun.
Areas of rain for southeastern Europe from the Czech Republic into Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria. Mainly dry toward the Black Sea. Some patchy rain for western Poland, but much of Germany should be dry and quite warm. France and the Low Countries will be dry with sunny spells, although rain moves into northwest France through the day.
A belt of rain lies across Sweden and parts of northern Norway, but southern Norway will be dry. High pressure centred around Finland brings fair weather to much of the Baltic region, and reasonably warm temperatures on southeasterly winds.
