BBC Weather forecaster Stav Danaos forecast rain with patches of sunshine for much of Europe over the next few days. Central Europe will see some of the greatest showers while it shares the cold air with Scandinavia. There will be pockets of warm weather and sunshine, however, most notably in the south-east of Europe.

However, it will remain wet and mild for many over the next few days, with the temperature still below average for the time of year.

Mr Danaos said: “Temperatures are remaining below the seasonal average for much of the European continent.

“This is particularly true of central and northern parts with cold northerly winds persisting.”

The BBC weather forecaster noted that in south-east Europe there would be warm weather in contrast.

He said: “It will be a chilly start to the day, temperatures will reach around the mid-teens but it does remain below Denmark, Northern Germany and Scandinavia.
