BBC Weather warning: Flood alert issued as heavy rain batters Europe

BBC Weather: Flood warning issued across Europe

BBC Weather forecaster Louise Lear noted that western Europe can expect wet and unsettled weather over the next few days. She said a weather front from the Atlantic would bring in heavy rain and this would increase the risk of localised flooding. In Scandinavia, the weather will remain relatively the same as the last few days with dry but cold temperatures.

Ms Lear said: “There are some weather warnings as there is potential for some localised flooding.

“These warnings still remain in force in parts of France as we see some very unsettled weather.

“This curl of cloud shows wet weather pushing its way across France and Germany.

“There is more to come as we move into Wednesday as well.

She also noted that the weather in eastern Europe greatly contrasts the rest of the continent.

She said: “It is cold in Scandinavia and that easterly wind will be a feature for the UK over the next few days.
