BBC Weather’s Sarah Keith-Lucas said there is contrasting temperatures across Europe as the east of the continent will remain hot throughout the week. Ms Keith-Lucas said: “We’ve got some contrasts east to west in terms of temperature across Europe over the coming few days.
“It’s been quite warm in western areas but that’s about to change; cooler air moving in as low pressure delivers some showers here.
“Further east across Europe high pressure is holding on, lots of dry weather but things have been a little bit cooler for the likes of Moscow, Warsaw for instance.
“That warmer air will be pushing its way eastwards as showers start to roll in towards the UK, France, Portugal and Spain.
“Lots of dry, warm weather in Turkey and Cyprus. A few showers for Greece and southern Italy.
“Mostly dry for much of Spain but showers arriving in Portugal just pushing into the north of Spain.
“France and the UK turning more unsettled through the course of Wednesday.”
She added: “Things turning cooler and unsettled from the West on Thursday.
It comes as temperatures hit up to 30C in parts of the UK on Tuesday as the country enjoys a warm start to September.
