BBC meteorologist Chris Fawkes told viewers that an area of low pressure is bringing some wet and windy weather across most areas of Italy. He noted that the low pressure had been forming as it comes across from north Africa. The weather presenter forecast that is would bring some heavy rain and also some snow.
Mr Fawkes said: “We’ve even seen some snow down across the western side of Calabria.
“It’s down to quite low levels just for a time.
“The snowline will be rising though but there could be some further fairly heavy snow for a time at least in the Pennines during Thursday.
“At the same time, the rain is going to, by Thursday, push into parts of Greece.”
He continued: “There’ll be some thunderstorms breaking out here and the weather turning much cooler.
“It’s still very windy in Italy on Thursday, still with extensive rain around.
“We’ve got some showers across the Balearic Islands, but across much of mainland Spain and Portugal, it’s dry with some sunshine.
“It’s rather cloudy for the southeast of France, otherwise brighter with sunshine.”
The BBC presenter added: “Most of northern Europe is actually fine, settled and sunny with not a great deal of cloud around.
“The area of low pressure is weakening by this stage and pushing eastwards.
“So we’ll start to get some rain across the Balkans.”
