BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor warned of up to 250mm of rain for Italy on Friday. He noted that much of Italy and parts of the Balkans could see flooding due to the heavy rain. Elsewhere in Europe, it does remain dry with temperatures above average in some parts.

Mr Taylor said: “We started this week with flooding in parts of France and western Italy.

“At the moment we are looking towards the east of Italy, the Balkans and also Greece.

“This chart shows how rainfall totals mount up over the coming days.

“The brighter colours are in eastern Italy, parts of northern Greece into Albania.

“We could see as much as much as 200-250mm of rain, that is why the flood risk is there.”

The BBC Weather forecaster noted how in the south west part of Europe they will see the most rain on Friday.

Temperatures in the region are expected to still be warm however.

Mr Taylor continued: “There is an area of low pressure on Friday circulating to the south of Italy.

“There will be strong winds on the northern edge, buffering parts of northern Italy, Croatia and the northern Adriatic.

“But it is across Greece into the southern Balkans, the south and east of Italy where the rainfall just continues.

“This is the reason for the increased flood risk.”

In the west of Europe, the weather is considerably drier.

Central Europe will also see temperatures just shy of 20C before a new wet weather system moves in.
