A mostly dry and fine day across Iberia though frequent showers affect the far north of Spain. Rain clears east from the Balearic Islands leaving a dry and fine afternoon here. After a dry start a band of locally heavy rain spreads across Corsica, Sardinia and the northern half of Italy. Staying dry and sunny for Sicily and southern Italy. Dry and bright conditions extend across the Balkans, Greece and Turkey.
A cloudy day with showers or longer spells of rain across much of France. Rain affecting the Belgian and Netherlands coasts. Drier further inland here though. A band of rain will pass from west to east across Germany. Heavy spells of rain will affect Switzerland and western parts of Austria with patchy rain affecting western parts of Poland and the Czech Republic. Largely dry and fine elsewhere across eastern Europe.
A cloudy and wet day for much of Denmark. Largely dry across Norway and Sweden but southern areas will see spells of rain. Wet with rain across northern and central Finland but drier towards the south. Largely dry and fine across the Baltic region although expect showers by evening.
Dry and fine for much of Spain and Portugal again on Tuesday though cloud builds from the northwest and patchy outbreaks of rain develop here later. Early showers fade from the Balearic Islands leaving a dry and fine day here. Frequent showers, these locally quite heavy, affect Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and central and southern parts of Italy. Drier and bright for northern Italy. Dry and fine for Greece and Turkey though cloud builds over Greece later and a band of heavy rain may affect the far west by evening.
A band of patchy rain spreads across France affecting most areas with the exception of the far southeast. Rain also spreads across the Low Countries and into the far northwest of Germany. Otherwise a dry and fair day for Germany and Switzerland. Early rain (snow over the Alps) fades over Austria and the Czech Republic while Poland has a rather cloudy day with isolated showers over western areas. Dry and mostly fine for eastern Poland, Slovakia and Hungary.
Wet and increasingly windy for Denmark and southern parts of Norway and Sweden. Further north a band of heavy rain spreads northward over central and north Sweden and much of Finland, increasingly turning to snow as it approaches the Arctic Circle. Rather cloudy with scattered showers for the Baltic States with heavier, more persistent outbreaks of rain developing here later.
