“There is a trailing weather front that is draped over the central parts of Europe, not a huge amount of wet weather, but certainly some clouds in places.

“There is humid weather towards the southeast, particularly affecting parts of Greece. This is how it looks on Friday.

“If you advance into Saturday night, in fact, the wet weather zone begins to take over more of Greece to parts of Bulgaria to Turkey as well.

“It looks like pretty heavy showers in places here so it will be wet weather here on Saturday.

“To the west of it all, while the winds can sometimes cool off in the Adriatic over the weekend, there is a lot of dry weather, we lost those torrential rains coming from the east of the Spain.

“Heading south and into Portugal expect a lot of cloud and you might see some patchy rain.

“It will be pretty cool for many with some snowfall in the heights of Norway, where we have seen a lot recently.

“While it’s pretty cool for many, Paris and London will heat up, albeit briefly, for the second half of the weekend.

“Berlin will also see a big warm-up in the coming week that looks like spring.”
