Very warm across much of Europe today with the hottest temperatures across Spain and Portugal. A dry day with sunny skies to come across Spain, Portugal, across the Balearics into Sardinia, Greece and most of Turkey. Dry as well across The Balkans and the Adriatic Region with sunny spells.
An area of heavy showers to come from Finland into the Baltic States, western Russia and The Ukraine. A few showers to for the northern coasts of Poland but largely a fine, summer's day across Poland, Germany, The Netherlands and Belgium. Denmark might catch a shower with a dry day. Across Norway and Sweden it will be cooler but dry. Very windy through the Aegean Sea.
Some showers in northern Spain today whilst most of the rest of Iberia remains dry with good spells of sunshine and will be warm too. Dry and fine weather extends through the Balearics and into Italy with plenty of sunshine. A fine day too in Greece and Turkey and feeling very warm here.
France should be mostly dry with good spells of sunshine although an odd shower could affect the far north. Germany and Poland will be dry and fine too with more spells of sunshine. Poland sees some showers in the east with Austria and Hungary being dry. Some afternoon showers forming in Switzerland.
A fine day for Denmark with good spells of sunshine here. Chilly with some showery rain in the Baltic States and remaining fine across Finland too. Some sunny spells and dry for Sweden and Norway, just a few showers in northern Norway.
