Staying unsettled across much of northern and central Europe and Scandinavia. Drier conditions across the Mediterranean.
Rain affecting northern and northwest Spain and Portugal will ease and gradually clear through the day. Dry and fine elsewhere here. Showers possible across the easternmost Balearic Islands but an improving day here. Scatters or longer spells of rain affecting Italy and the surrounding islands. Largely dry across Greece but cloud will build in the north later. Dry and fine across Turkey.
Another unsettled day across much of France with the heaviest of rain and brisk winds affecting the northern regions. The Low Countries will see rain spread in from the west with strengthening winds here too. This rain will later affect west Germany. Drier further east. Heavy rain will ease over the Alpine countries first thing leaving sunny spells but also showers about. Dry to start for much of eastern Europe, but rain will become more widespread through the afternoon.
A potentially bright start for Denmark but turning cloudy with some outbreaks of rain later. Breezy too. A band of heavy rain over south Norway, Sweden and Finland will ease while pushing northwards through the day. Dry and fine across the northern half of Scandinavia. Largely dry with sunny spells over the Baltic region but it will turn cloudier later with rain pushing up from the south.
Largely dry and fine across Spain and Portugal, however, cloudier skies could linger over the northern coastal areas of Spain. Dry and fine for the Balearics too. Some patchy rain affecting the far south of Italy with some showers possible across the surrounding islands as well as mainland Italy but plenty of dry and sunny conditions also. Rain possibly affecting the far northwest of Greece but largely dry elsewhere. Dry and fine across Turkey.
A cloudy day with a band of rain spreading across France, heavy in places. Breezy further north and west too. Unsettled across the Low Countries and Germany with showers or longer spells of rain as well as a brisk south-westerly wind. Rain pushing into Switzerland early on. Largely dry across Austria and the Balkan States but with some scattered showers affecting this region. Some patchy, light rain in the north and west of Poland but drier elsewhere.
Becoming increasingly unsettled across Scandinavia as a extensive band of rain spreads from south to north through the day. Not particularly cold as winds will be from a southerly direction although they are expected to strengthen, particularly across the Baltic States where there will be sunny spells and blustery showers once the rain clears first thing. Heavy rain affecting northern Denmark first thing before clearing to see a day of sunny spells but also plenty of blustery showers.
