Tomasz Schafernaker forecast drier weather conditions across central Europe as the storm pulls towards the south and east. The BBC meteorologist added that other parts of Europe will experience nasty rainstorms as a result of the movement of the storm.
Mr Schafernaker said: “There is some good news for the flood-stricken regions of western Europe.
“The storm is now pulling away towards the east and the south, taking its rain out of the region.
“Things are looking drier across this part of the world which is of course good news.
“Unfortunately, it does look as if we could see some nasty rainstorms in other parts of Europe towards the east.
“The far very southeast of Europe is looking hot and sunny.
“The energy from that storm that dumped all of that rain into western Europe has now moved away to another area of the continent.”
The BBC’s long-range weather forecast for the end and start of August outlines “tricky” weather conditions.
The BBC wrote: “As we head into August the forecast gets a bit tricky.

“The main culprit for this is the high-pressure system in Scandinavia, and how influential it will be for the UK’s weather pattern.
“We anticipate that this high will tend to shift east far enough that we will no longer feel its impacts, but there are a lot of conflicting signals.
The further east high-pressure shifts, the more likely it is for low pressure from Iceland to shift overhead and continue to give us a cloudy, damp, and slightly cool summer.
This looks increasingly likely as we get into early August, but the exact timing is very uncertain.

The forecast continued: “At the same time, high pressure in the Atlantic will be complicating matters and occasionally sending ridges of high pressure through northern Europe into Scandinavia.
“The pattern shift away from the high pressure of late-July to the low pressure of early-August will likely be gradual as we see weakened weather fronts penetrating ever further south and southeast.
“This would promote more westerly or north-westerly winds which, easing the chances for any heat waves from the south.
“There is a chance that high pressure remains strong across northern Europe through into August, resulting in a more long-lived settled, dry, and warm pattern and decidedly more summer-like weather.”
