BBC Weather forecaster Nick Miller noted that the weekend will see eastern Europe hit with rain and thunderstorms. However, after this rainfall, the warmth is set to return to Europe after temperatures have remained below average for the time of year. Western Europe will see some of the warmest temperatures over the weekend and into the new week.

Mr Miller said: “Below average temperatures across a large part of Europe at the moment.

“There are some downpours around but this is particularly true in eastern areas.

“This is because of this area of low pressure and swirls in the cloud takes an area of showers and storms further east.

“As we take a look at things going into Friday it is really from Bulgaria, Romania and parts of Ukraine that will see areas of heavy rain.
