An area of low pressure brings heavy rain to Portugal and Spain
Heavy rain clearing Portugal through the morning to allow for sunny spells but also some showers. The rain will push across Spain although the far northeast should remain dry throughout. Breezy along southern coasts. Dry through the Balearics but winds will strengthen and cloud amount will increase. Dry and fine across Italy but rather windy across Corsica and Sardinia. An improving day across Greece as showers clear from the north. Dry for much of Turkey.
A mostly dry and fine day across central Europe, although rain and cloud will still affect northwest France as well as western coasts here. Localised gales will also affect coastal areas of southern France. Less windy for the Low Countries on Sunday.
Rain, sleet and snow affecting much of Norway as well as northern Sweden while Finland will see largely cloudy skies with a mix of rain, sleet and snow too. A largely cloudy but dry day for the Baltic States. Denmark too will be dry but sunny spells are expected.
Heavy outbreaks of rain, sleet and snow affect northeast Spain on Monday while the rest of Spain and Portugal see a largely dry and sunny day. Rather cloudy with scattered showers for the Balearic Islands, Corsica and Sardinia. Dry and bright for the rest of Italy, the Balkans, Greece and Turkey.
