“This is a low pressure system, a region of unsettled weather with showers and thunderstorms in certain areas.
“This will go on until Monday or Tuesday.”
He claimed that because Western Europe is under high pressure, “the weather is lot more settled.”
“The Mediterranean continues hot and bright this week,” the BBC meteorologist stated.
“On Monday, Greece and Turkey will have temperatures in excess of 30 degrees Celsius.

“On Tuesday, the overcast weather front will primarily affect the Baltic nations and Poland. In some areas, there could be a lot of rain.
“It stays bright, or at least settled, further west into Tuesday.”
London’s temperature remained stable between 19°C to 20°C, while Madrid’s temperature hovered at 30°C.
