Chris Fawkes forecast a wet week for Scandinavian countries Sweden, Norway and Finland as low pressure pushes a band of rain across the region. The BBC Weather meteorologist also highlighted a wind speed of 40kph to 50kph across northern Europe, stating that showers will be pushed around the continent as a result of the gusts.
Mr Fawkes said: “Low pressure is firmly in charge and this is bringing widespread thunderstorms and showers behind our main band of rain.
“By Wednesday it will be falling across northern areas of Norway, Sweden and Finland.
“Across northern Europe, gusts of wind are about 40 to 50kph.
“At least the means the showers will not hang around in any one place for any length of time.
“But there will be lots of showers, shower after shower really.
“There are downpours spreading their way across Germany, just 15 degrees in Berlin, 8 degrees below average for this time of year.”
BBC Weather’s long-range forecast for the first week of June warns of high-pressure over the Bank Holiday weekend.
The BBC wrote: “High pressure over the bank holiday weekend will gradually begin to slide away to the southwest in early June.

“However, this might take a good part of the week, so a lot of drier and sunnier weather is expected to start.
“Low pressure from Scandinavia will eventually find its way to the UK from the east, turning things increasingly more unsettled.
“First in eastern areas, but eventually for most of the country. The rain will most often take the form of scattered afternoon heavy or thundery showers, rather than stormier weather with bands of rain.
“With low pressure east of us and high pressure to the southwest, the large scale weather pattern helps promote northerly or north-westerly winds through the week.
“This will keep the temperatures below average, bringing in air from Iceland and the North Atlantic.

“Our best bet to get warmer, more summerlike temperatures will be if we can tap into sub-tropical Atlantic or African air, and to do that we need a south-westerly or southerly wind.”
The BBC continued: “The main alternate scenario for early June is that high pressure remains overhead instead of shifting away.
“This is still a cool pattern, but it would remain dry and settled throughout the week instead of turning showery.
“There is a chance sub-tropical air may filter into western areas, but this is thought to be unlikely. We have high confidence on the temperatures staying below normal, but medium confidence on showery weather later in the week as there is perhaps a 30% chance that high pressure remains in place.”
