BBC Weather: Storm Aiden to bombard Europe as heavy winds and torrential rains strike

BBC Weather forecaster Darren Bett said northwestern parts of Europe will see some of the wettest weather over the next few days due to Storm Aiden. He forecasted heavy rain on Saturday evening and another band of rain and wind to strike the UK, Scandinavia and parts of central Europe by Sunday evening. Mr Bett said: “This weekend looks generally dry across much of the Mediterranean but it will continue to be unsettled in the further north.

“On Saturday we have had Storm Aiden sweeping to the north-west of the UK.

“That is moving away but by Sunday there will be some more wind and rain coming into the UK.

“Storm Aiden will be spilling itself into other northwestern parts of Europe.”

The BBC Weather forecaster added southern Europe would be mostly dry over the next few days into the new week.

“We have got some storms moving across more northern parts of Turkey and into the Black Sea.

“It should be dry through the Balkans as well but further north we have got more wet weather coming into Scandinavia.

“It will also come in across Germany and strike Poland by the end of the day as well.

The weather forecaster explained what Europe could expect going into the new week.
