BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor stated low pressure with wet conditions has dominated the weather across Europe recently. The BBC meteorologist noted that temperatures will be cooler to the east of Europe but there will some severe storms around the continent in the coming days.

Mr Taylor said: “Low pressure with fairly cool and wet conditions has dominated across parts of Europe recently.

“This area of high pressure though is keeping things dry through Spain and Portugal and will extend to France later on Wednesday night and Thursday.

“There will be some storms pushing their way eastward to the Balkans, bring some cooler conditions with it.

“It will be cooler to the east of Europe as well with some severe storms around.

“The western Med will stay dry, sunny and very pleasant over there.”

He added: “There are a few scattered showers through central Europe but a wet and windy spell for Ireland and the UK through Thursday and into Friday.”

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast for the UK for the final week of May warns of “high-pressure building to the west of Europe”.

The BBC wrote: “This should push the broad low pressure through to our east.

“This pattern will bring a colder northerly wind and keep temperatures well below average.

“Normally when high pressure is overhead, it means the weather is more settled and drier.

“However, in this case, the high is expected to be a little too far away to prevent showers completely.

“Lows will tend to be further east in East Europe or Scandinavia, so we shouldn’t see anything too wet either.”

The BBC continued: “The most likely scenario is scattered showers and occasional weak weather fronts mainly impacting northern and eastern areas.

“The risk of lowland frost will largely be gone as we are at the end of meteorological spring.

“The higher sun angles mean that any sunny spells in the afternoon will still feel warm despite the below-average air overhead.

“We have high confidence on the temperatures being below average, but only medium confidence on the rainfall details for the week.”
