Heavy showers and storms are expected to hit Europe as high temperatures begin to plummet, according to the BBC.
Despite red warnings for high temperatures in the south east, BBC Weather has forecast rain across Europe.
Helen Willetts, a BBC Weather meteorologist, reported that weather warnings for hot temperatures in the Mediterranean were still in effect. They will, however, see some rain and possibly thunderstorms during the weekend. The most of the rain will fall across Central Europe during the weekend.
On Sunday, this wet weather front will be replaced by another wet weather front.
“There are still red alerts in effect for south eastern Europe,” Ms Willetts said.
“This is primarily true of Crete and Greece.
“We are expecting a cold front to pass through on Friday, bringing slightly cooler air with it.
“Unfortunately, those wildfires will be exacerbated by the stronger winds.
Parts of south-eastern Europe will also see some rain, according to the BBC Weather forecaster.
“There will be some heavy showers with thunder and lightning associated with it.”
“We’ve also had some more storms, and there’s a red alert out for that wet weather in Poland on Friday,” she said.
“Lake Como in Italy was flooded as a result of the rainy weather.
“Some rains and thunderstorms are expected in the south-eastern areas of Europe, which will be a welcome change.
“Temperatures in the Balkans will also drop a few degrees on Friday and Saturday.”
Central Europe will also have heavy showers on Saturday, according to the weather forecaster.
“More showers, rain, and thunderstorms heading up across the Alps,” Ms Willetts continued.
“It will push up through Scandinavia and Finland, and the next system will arrive on Sunday.
“As the week progresses, temperatures in the Mediterranean begin to rise again.”
