Nick Miller forecast increasing temperatures across Spain, Portugal, Norway, and Sweden. The BBC meteorologist stated that much of the continent is still experiencing temperatures that are below average for this time of year and added that Saturday will see cloud and thundery rain in the east of Europe.

Mr Miller said: “Temperatures on the up in Spain and Portugal as well as Norway and Sweden too.

“There is a taste of summer around Europe over the next few days.

“Much of Europe though still with temperatures a bit below the average for the time of year.

“The cloud is here to the east, looking like by Saturday there will be some heavy and thundery rain at times.

“Across southeastern areas where we have seen that wet weather in the last couple of days, it will be a drier day.

“Elsewhere in Germany and Poland, we are going to see scattered showers and thunderstorms.”

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast for the first week of June warns of high-pressure over the Bank Holiday weekend.

The BBC wrote: “High pressure over the bank holiday weekend will gradually begin to slide away to the southwest in early June.

“However, this might take a good part of the week, so a lot of drier and sunnier weather is expected to start.

“Low pressure from Scandinavia will eventually find its way to the UK from the east, turning things increasingly more unsettled.”

The BBC Weather forecaster continued: “First in eastern areas, but eventually for most of the country. The rain will most often take the form of scattered afternoon heavy or thundery showers, rather than stormier weather with bands of rain.

“With low-pressure east of us and high pressure to the southwest, the large scale weather pattern helps promote northerly or north-westerly winds through the week.

“This will keep the temperatures below average, bringing in air from Iceland and the North Atlantic.

“Our best bet to get warmer, more summerlike temperatures will be if we can tap into sub-tropical Atlantic or African air, and to do that we need a south-westerly or southerly wind.”

The BBC continued: “The main alternate scenario for early June is that high pressure remains overhead instead of shifting away.

“This is still a cool pattern, but it would remain dry and settled throughout the week instead of turning showery.

“There is a chance sub-tropical air may filter into western areas, but this is thought to be unlikely. We have high confidence on the temperatures staying below normal, but medium confidence on showery weather later in the week as there is perhaps a 30% chance that high pressure remains in place.”
