Showery rain again for Greece with lingering patchy, light rain over parts of Turkey.
Largely dry and fine again for France although some showery rain affecting southern areas. Mainly dry and fine but mist and low cloud should be expected in places for the Low Countries and Germany. Mainly dry for Switzerland and Austria but a few showers developing later in the day here. Dry for much of eastern Europe although a band of rain will push into northern Poland in the afternoon.
Norway will see some snow showers into central areas but mainly dry conditions elsewhere. Largely dry and fine for Sweden. Rain, sleet and snow will clear southwards across Finland allowing for drier and brighter conditions from the north. Breezy through the Baltics and feeling cold with a few snow flurries but it will be mostly dry here. Cloudy across Denmark for a time with some patchy light rain.

An increasingly cloudy but dry day for Denmark. Early showers fade from Finland and the Baltic States to leave a cold but dry and fair day here. Rain, sleet and snow affect northern portions of Norway and Sweden while southern areas staying dry. Best of the sun over southern Norway.
