Tomasz Schafernaker has forecast plenty of warm summer weather for Europe over the weekend, with temperatures expected to reach close to 30C. The BBC meteorologist added that there will be some scatted showers across Turkey, Greece and the Balkans.

He said: “We have plenty of warm summer weather across the continent.

“There is lots of sunshine for many central and western parts of Europe.

“In Scandinavia, you can see pressure moving through bring some wet weather temporarily.

“It is still very warm in Scandinavia particularly in the north, with temperatures well above average for the time of year.

“In Saturday’s forecast, you can see a scattering of showers across Turkey, parts of Greece and the Balkans as well.

“In western areas temperatures over the weekend could be hitting 30C.”

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.”
