Ms Jenkins said: “We are following a passage of a cold front across central Europe with cooler air across much of France and Germany.

“The weather front itself brings potential of rain and heavy thunderstorms through parts of Switzerland and norther Italy

“The weather front will continue to slide its way eastwards as we head through Sunday night and into Monday.

“We will also see some heavy rain develop across the Balearics on Monday, that could bring quite a lot of rain in a short amount of time.”

She continued: “On Monday in Turkey, Cyprus and Greece things are looking dry.

“There will be lots of sunshine and temperatures in the high 20s or low 30s.

“There will still be some outbreaks of rain across northern Italy.

“A frontal system will arrive in the north west of the British Isles and push its way across to Scandinavia.”  

The weather in Britain at the start of next week will be dry before becoming increasingly wet and windy towards the weekend.

Although temperatures will remain mixed, forecasters are predicting warmer conditions in the south.

Commenting on the forecast between September 7-13, the BBC said: “After a potentially dry and settled start to the week, low pressure will become the dominating feature of our weather from midweek onwards.

“The second half of the week will often be wet and windy, and with temperatures likely to close to or below where they should be for this time of year.

“In fact, there is the potential for a deep area of low pressure to move right across the UK, bringing strong winds and heavy rain.

“If this were to pan out, further damage and disruption could be expected, following on from recent storms, Storm Ellen and Storm Francis.

“That being said, there is a slight chance that low pressure remains away to the west of the British Isles and over the Atlantic.

“In this scenario, it would be a much drier and calmer week, and also much warmer, with a plume of warm air pushing up from the south.”
