BBC Weather forecaster Stav Danaos said central and southeastern parts of Europe would see some of the wettest weather over the weekend. Temperatures will remain in the mid-teens for many parts of central Europe as well. In eastern parts of Europe, things will remain dry and sunny while southeastern Europe will see a slight dip in temperature.

Mr Danaos said: “Low pressure will be dominating the northern half of Europe this weekend.

“We have got a series of them working their way in off the Atlantic.

“It could bring some disruption, some heavy rain, and some strong winds.

“That is certainly what we have seen over the last 24 hours in.”
