BBC Weather: Europe will be soaked by ‘heavy and torrential downpours,’ with flash flooding anticipated.
Heavy and torrential downpours are expected throughout central Europe, according to BBC Weather, with flash flooding expected in a number of nations in the coming days.
Because of a low pressure area in the middle of the continent, heat is split between the east and west of Europe, according to Nick Miller. As a result of the low pressure, France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland should expect torrential downpours and perhaps flash flooding, according to the BBC meteorologist.
“There is currently an east-west division in Europe when it comes to heat,” Mr Miller added.
“Temperatures throughout Eastern Europe, western Russia, the Baltic countries, and Scandinavia are above average.
“It will warm up in the west, particularly in Portugal, in the coming days.
“An area of low pressure in the middle parts of the country is dividing the two sides, with slow-moving heavy, even torrential downpours.
“The risk of flash floods in regions of France, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland has increased.
“It is very much a component of this weather system’s forecast.”
The BBC’s long-range weather forecast for the end of July and the beginning of August predicts “interesting” weather.
“As we approach August, the prediction becomes a little more complicated,” the BBC noted.
“The fundamental cause of this is the Scandinavian high-pressure system, which will have a significant impact on the UK weather pattern.
“We expect this high to relocate east enough that we will no longer be affected by it, but there are a lot of contradicting signs.
The further east high pressure goes, the more likely low pressure from Iceland will relocate overhead and keep us in a gloomy, rainy, and slightly cold summer.
As we approach early August, this appears to be more possible, although the specific timing remains unknown.
“At the same time, high pressure in the Atlantic will be complicating things and periodically bringing ridges of high pressure into northern Europe and into Scandinavia,” the forecast stated.
“As we anticipate weakening weather fronts spreading more south and southeast, the pattern shift from late-July high pressure to early-August low pressure will likely be slow.
“More westerly or north-westerly winds would result, reducing the risks of heat waves from the south.
“There’s a likelihood that high pressure will continue strong across northern Europe into August, leading in a more long-lasting stable, dry weather pattern.” Brinkwire Summary News.
