BBC Weather forecasts contrasting conditions in Europe

Conditions will remain warm for the time of year for the next week of August, though are unlikely to reach heatwave levels.

Between August 16 and 24 Netweather forecasts: “Temperatures are expected to be above average during this period, most likely by around 2C for most parts of the UK although in Scotland and Northern Ireland positive anomalies of nearer 1C are likely.

“Confidence in rainfall totals is low, as there are likely to be some unsettled, possibly thundery, interludes during this period.

“Sunshine totals will most likely be rather above normal for most parts of the UK.”

The possibility of thundery rain risks repeating scenes seen in late July, when a number of flash floods took place in London.

BBC Weather’s long-range forecast from, Monday, August 9 to Sunday, August 15, said: “The unsettled pattern is likely to persist throughout early August with a northwest-southeast temperature contrast developing over continental Europe as heat builds in the Southeast.

“This temperature contrast will help fuel the jet stream, a ribbon of fast-moving air in the upper atmosphere.

“As the jet stream strengthens, Atlantic weather fronts will become more frequent and faster moving, which will tend to make the weather more changeable day-to-day.”

But they add: “Temperatures will often be near or a bit below average, but some brief warm spells are possible for southern areas at times.”
