BBC Weather: ‘Extreme heat’ to descend upon Europe as continent set for weekend heatwave

BBC Weather meteorologist Louise Lear stated there will temperatures as high 40C in Cyprus and mainland Greece. She added due to a weather front outbreaks of rain will flow through Germany into Poland and Scandinavia.

Ms Lear said: “There is still a good deal of dry weather to be found in Europe at the moment.

“There is some extreme heat across the south east and Mediterranean.

“That said we have got weather fronts bringing strong winds and showery outbreaks out of Germany and into Poland as well as Scandinavia.

“The Mediterranean itself is settled and sunny, with extreme heat in the south east.”

She continued: “Temperatures in Cyprus over the next couple of days likely to peak into the mid 40s, that really is quite extreme.

“Some of that heat will affect Turkey and mainland Greece.

“That warmth actually floods its way into parts of Russia as well.

“There will be wet weather in Poland and Scandinavia.”

The weather in Britain at the start of next week will be dry before becoming increasingly wet and windy towards the weekend.

Although temperatures will remain mixed, forecasters are predicting warmer conditions in the south.

Commenting on the forecast between September 7-13, the BBC said: “After a potentially dry and settled start to the week, low pressure will become the dominating feature of our weather from midweek onwards.

“The second half of the week will often be wet and windy, and with temperatures likely to close to or below where they should be for this time of year.

“In fact, there is the potential for a deep area of low pressure to move right across the UK, bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

“If this were to pan out, further damage and disruption could be expected, following on from recent storms, Storm Ellen and Storm Francis.

“That being said, there is a slight chance that low pressure remains away to the west of the British Isles and over the Atlantic.

“In this scenario, it would be a much drier and calmer week, and also much warmer, with a plume of warm air pushing up from the south.”
