Low pressure bringing cloud and outbreaks of rain to parts of the Med and east Europe
A few showers continue to affect southern Spain, plus a few popping up over the Pyrenees and around the mountains over the French-Italian border too. Mainly dry for Portugal and northwest Spain. Low pressure over the central-southern Mediterrain brings heavy rain and brisk winds to Sardinia and southern Italy. Dry for much of northern Italy and the Balkans. Greece is likely to see some outbreaks of showery rain.
France, the Low Countries and much of Germany will be dry, although a few showers may affect eastern Germany and the Czech Republic. Scattered showers for Poland and Romania. More organised areas of rain or showers for Ukraine. Staying breezy for the southern Baltic, but much of Scandinavia will be dry as high pressure stays in charge here. Some warm sunshine for southern Norway and Sweden.
A largely dry day across Spain and Portugal although under the thicker cloud in the east a few showers could develop. Showers or longer spells of rain continue across the Balearic Islands as well as Corsica, Sardinia and southern parts of Italy including Sicily. Some scattered showers for Greece and rain pushing across Turkey.
Mainly dry but feeling slightly chillier than average across France and the Low Countries. Largely dry for Germany although cloudier skies and some rain in the east. Poland will be unsettled with outbreaks of rain throughout the day. Mainly dry across Austria and Switzerland but some showers could develop in the build up of cloud later. Mostly dry across north Italy. Expect Slovakia and Croatia to be largely dry but Bosnia wet with rain.
High pressure over Scandinavia will bring plenty of dry conditions although some patchy rain across parts of Denmark is expected. Winds too will be rather brisk and feeling chilly through the Baltic States.
