BBC Weather forecaster Ben Rich forecast chilly nights and cold mornings across a large part of Europe but added sunshine will bring warmer weather throughout the coming days. However, the BBC meteorologist added that showers are expected to break out across the continent and outlined a weather system that will lead to a downpour in Portugal later in the week.

Mr Rich said: “The nights and the early mornings are still quite chilly across large parts of Europe but as the sun comes up things do warm up.

“We have got a scattering of showers, quite generally showery weather across the northeast of Spain into southern France.

“Also, quite a few showers breaking out across central and eastern parts of Europe through Wednesday afternoon.

“Where those showers do pop up it could be quite slow-moving with light winds in many areas.

“Through Wednesday night you can see those showers fade, it is meant to be another chilly one for many.

“An area of cloud and showery rain will push its way into Italy and the Balkans as well with some of that rain turning quite heavy.

“There are a fair few showers popping up again across eastern parts of the continent.”

The BBC meteorologist added: “A weather system will eventually turn things very wet across Portugal for the end of the week.

“The temperatures will be extremely sensitive to where the high is and what sort of air the winds will blow into the UK.

“If the high is mainly to our west, we will get colder Atlantic air from near Iceland, so temperatures will tend to be below average.

“This is the outlook we prefer, which has some support for computer models too.

“If the high is too close to Iceland to our northwest, we will get Arctic air and temperatures will be well below average.”
