Helen Willetts has outlined red weather warnings across Italy and Hungary as Europe is set for widespread heat. The BBC meteorologist added that Finland and western Russia are experiencing near recording-breaking temperatures for June.
Ms Willetts said: “Red or orange warnings are out across many eastern parts of Europe during the next couple of days.
“The red warnings are for the likes of Italy and Hungary but that heat is widespread.
“We have had near recording-breaking June temperatures in Finland.
“We could break the June record in western parts of Russia.
“On the cusp of that hot air, we have also got a weather front with slightly cool air behind it.
“It is feeding some pretty lively showers and thunderstorms.
“There are concerns here for some flooding rains, damaging winds, hail, and even the odd tornado.”
The BBC’s long-range forecast for Monday, June 28 to Sunday, July 4 outlined unsettled conditions.

The BBC wrote: “As we head into July the large-scale weather pattern is expected to change from what we experienced for the first part of June.
“High pressure is expected to build in the North Atlantic to the west of Europe while another high in Russia builds off to the east.
“Between these high-pressure zones, an area of low pressure is expected, which will often be nearby to the UK in Northwest Europe.
“This will lead to a more unsettled pattern for the UK with wetter and at times windier conditions and fewer dry and sunny days.

“At the same time, temperatures will trend a little cooler with northwesterly or northerly winds bringing in some fresher Atlantic air from nearer to Iceland.
“This type of weather pattern is notorious for the day-to-day variability that can be difficult to predict more than about a week ahead.
“We can say with high confidence that we expect the large-scale weather pattern to develop by early July but we only have medium confidence on the specific details, especially with the temperatures.
“There’s a smaller chance high pressure could also build overhead and push lows into Scandinavia.”
