Matt Taylor forecast dry weather and sunshine across much of the continent but highlighted an area of low pressure pushing towards Portugal. The BBC meteorologist stated Spain will see rain on Friday while sleet and snow will hit Finland going into the weekend.

Mr Taylor said: “Across much of Europe, it is dry at the moment, it is pleasant in the spring sunshine.

“It is not the same everywhere though, low pressure pushes in towards Portugal and western Spain.

“That will bring some rain in the next two days, some strong winds and also some rough seas, that will be the case on Friday.

“Low pressure centred across Finland brings a return of sleet and snow down towards Baltic states.

“It will eventually push into western Russia, dropping the temperature in Moscow.

“It is a pretty wet afternoon with some storms across Italy.

“It will move its way to southern Albania into Greece across parts of Bulgaria as we go into the start of the weekend.”

He added: “We will see some showers across southeast Spain, towards the west and parts of Portugal.

“The temperatures will be extremely sensitive to where the high is and what sort of air the winds will blow into the UK.

“If the high is mainly to our west, we will get colder Atlantic air from near Iceland, so temperatures will tend to be below average.

“This is the outlook we prefer, which has some support for computer models too.

“If the high is too close to Iceland to our northwest, we will get Arctic air and temperatures will be well below average.”
