Despite forecast “heavy downpours,” Europe is trapped by “extremely hot” temperatures, according to the BBC.
Despite a wet weather system heading in, BBC Weather predicts high temperatures across the country.
Sarah Keith-Lucas, a BBC weather forecaster, said Europe might see extreme heat in a variety of places. France, the United Kingdom, and portions of Italy may bear the worst of the rain and heavy showers. However, the next few days will be hot and dry in most sections of the continent.
“We have had some very unpredictable weather recently over areas of Europe, notably France and the United Kingdom,” Ms Keith Lucas added.
“Another region of low pressure is bringing a lot of cloud and showery weather to the area right now.
“It may stay for another day or so before gradually clearing eastwards, so I believe the focus is shifting eastwards on the unstable weather.”
Despite the rain, the BBC Weather forecaster predicted that temperatures across Europe would be warm.
Temperatures in Spain and Portugal are anticipated to be slightly shy of 30°C.
High temperatures in the mid-twenties are expected across Scandinavia, with largely dry weather.
Temperatures will soar over 30°C across much of east Europe and the islands, with plenty of sunshine.
“It has been really hot over Portugal and Spain, and we have some cooler air rolling in, so temperatures won’t be as high,” Ms Keith Lucas stated.
“It is quite hot in parts of eastern Europe, with mild sunshine continuing in Turkey and Greece.
“In the meantime, heavy rains are falling across northern Italy.
“This rain will have a significant impact on France as well.
“It’s largely dry in Spain and Portugal, although not as much as it was on Tuesday.
“There have been a few scattered showers in certain Baltic states, but it is still very hot.
“Temperatures in Moscow will be in the mid-30s as well.
“This area of low pressure will gradually move that rainfall towards central Europe.”
