Chris Fawkes forecast very high temperatures as southerly winds push temperatures into the mid-20s. However, the BBC meteorologist added that across much of Europe there is a risk of thunderstorms developing.

Mr Fawkes said: “Looking at the weather picture in Europe over the next few days there is a lot of dry weather but there will be some showers developing through the course of the day.

“As temperatures build there will be well scattered thundery showers.

“Looking at the forecast through Friday there is a big change on the way through areas of Sweden, Norway across Finland and into the northwest of Russia.

“Southerly winds will be bringing in some very high temperatures into the mid to high 20s even within the Arctic circle as we go through Friday.

“There is some unusually warm weather expected for these areas.

“Across much of Europe, there is a risk of showers and thunderstorms developing.”

The BBC’s long-range forecast Monday 14 to Sunday, June 20, outlines above-average temperatures and warm weather.

The BBC wrote: “High pressure that builds in strongly towards the end of next week should begin a slow westward trek in mid-June, gradually shifting away from the UK and into the North Atlantic.

“Mid-June is likely to remain warmer and drier than normal for a time as high pressure lingers near enough to deflect weather fronts.

“Temperatures are likely to be above average for most and may be slightly warmer than we expect for next week.

“Low pressure will be deepening in northeast Europe during the middle of June, bringing some cooler and wetter weather there.

“This should stay well to the east of us for a while, but it is being held there by the high pressure over the UK.”

The forecast continued: “Once our high begins to shift west, the cooler and wetter weather will spread in from the east.

“This may happen sometime in the second half of the week or hold off until a bit later in June.

“These warm summertime highs tend to be slow to move around, so it could take several days for the high to move far enough away that we see a change in the weather pattern.

“There is also a risk, about a 30 percent chance of occurrence, that high pressure stays overhead or slightly east of us well into July, keeping things warm, dry, and settled for the next several weeks.”
