Low pressure dominates over Scandinavia, while thunderstorms gradually ease across Greece.
Fair conditions continue across Spain and Portugal, though perhaps the risk of one or two isolated thunderstorms developing later across Majorca and Menorca. One or two scattered showers across Corsica too but dry across Italy and other surrounding Italian islands. Unsettled for particularly southern regions of Greece into west Turkey with strengthened winds and rain here.
Some cloud and patchy rain for a time across the far north of France, the Low Countries and northern Germany. Dry and fine elsewhere across central Europe as well as down the Balkan States. A band of rain will push eastwards across Poland, heavy for a time. Also strengthened winds here too.
A dry and fair day for Denmark, although rather breezy again. A band of rain, heavy for a time, will push eastwards through the Baltic States, clearing from the west later. Spells of rain affecting western Norway, drier further east and across much of Sweden. Unsettled with rain and strong winds across Finland.
After a dry start to Spain and Portugal, expect cloud and rain to push in to the northwest. Overnight thunderstorms and rain should clear through the day across the Balearics. Some showery rain still to affect Sardinia and Corsica as well as Sicily and far southern regions of Italy, but drier elsewhere across Italy. Thundery rain largely clears Greece through the day but continues across Turkey.
Thanks to high pressure over top it is to be mainly dry across Europe with sunny spells, though cloudier with some patchy light rain affecting parts of the Netherlands and coastal regions of Germany later.
Windy and chilly across Scandinavia as well as Denmark as low pressure is dominant. Expect showery rain across Norway. Largely dry for southern Sweden but spells of heavy rain for a time in the north. Outbreaks of rain affecting much of Finland. Sme blustery showers passing across the Baltics.
