Conditions remain rather cool and unsettled over northern parts of Europe
A few thunderstorms could develop over northeastern Spain later in the day but otherwise it's a warm, dry and sunny day for the rest of the country and for Portugal and the Balearic Islands too. Isolated showers may develop too over southwestern parts of Italy and Greece but staying mostly dry, hot and sunny for the eastern Mediterranean.
Dry and fine for much of western Europe too as high pressure builds here. France, the Low Countries, Germany and the Czech Republic all seeing a dry and fair day. A scattering of showers may develop over the Alps and over eastern parts of Poland but otherwise a dry and fine day too for Switzerland, Austria and western Poland.
Dry conditions extend into Denmark and southern Sweden though it may be somewhat cloudier here. An area of low pressure over Finland brings outbreaks of rain and some locally heavy showers to Finland, the Baltic States and northern Sweden though there could be some spells of sunshine between the showers for the Baltics. Outbreaks of rain for southwest Norway but drier and brighter to the north.
Thunderstorms are again a possibility for Spain though the focus shifts to the southeastern part of the country. A dry, warm and fine day across the rest of Spain as well as for Portugal and the Balearic Islands. Dry and fine too for much of Italy though showers could develop along the spine of the country and for Sicily later. Western Greece may also see afternoon showers develop but for much of the country and for Turkey it's another sunny, very warm and dry day.
A weak front brings showery outbreaks of rain into northwest France, the Low Countries and northern Germany on Tuesday. Ahead of this over France it's a cloudy and dry day while scattered showers affect much of Germany. Afternoon showers develop over the Alps where they may be locally heavy and over Poland where they're likely to be more scattered and lighter.
A band of rain sweeps across southern parts of Norway and Sweden as well as Denmark on Tuesday. Showery rain affecting northern parts of Norway and Sweden as well as Finland eases through the day leaving a dry evening. A mostly dry and fine day for the Baltic States though isolated showers may develop over Lithuania later.
