BBC Weather forecaster Susan Powell said a heavy rainstorm will strike France and parts of central Europe over the next few days. In addition to this it will bring cold air to the continent. Scandinavian nations can expect further snow as temperatures fail to rise.

Elsewhere in Europe, it will remain dry for the most part with small chances of outbreaks towards the end of the week.

Ms Powell said: “Through Thursday there is still the promise of some fairly extensive sunshine across southern Europe.

“It is a different story further north, however.

“There is a deep area of low pressure, it is set to go rolling in to the north of France and the low countries eventually.

The BBC Weather forecaster went on to explain the weather conditions in south eastern Europe.

It is expected to be dry going into Thursday and Friday with temperatures in the mid 20s.
