BBC Weather forecaster Stav Danaos warned Europe was in for more wet weather heading towards the weekend. Italy can expect some outbreaks of rain and thunderstorms while other parts of central and northern Europe will see only heavy rain and strong winds. South eastern Europe will also see a drop in temperatures as well as rain and wind.

Spain and Portugal are expected to see some of the warmest temperatures in the mid 20s due to the dry conditions and warm sunshine.

Mr Danaos said: “Apart from a few thunderstorms across southern Italy much of the Mediterranean is fine and settled and dry to end the week.

“But it is all change further north, an active jet is piled up some deep areas of low pressure which will continue to work its way from west to east.

“It will move from Ireland to the UK, northern France, northern Germany, Denmark and Scandinavia and then pushing on into eastern Europe.
