Thunderstorms to Rumble From France to Poland, Heat Scorches Southern Europe

A wave of low pressure and associated cold front will bring rounds of thunderstorms to areas from France to Poland this weekend.

Thunderstorms will develop from southern and eastern France into the Alps, southern Germany and much of Poland on Saturday. While most of these storms will not be severe, a few can contain downpours and gusty winds.

Low pressure will race from the North Sea eastward into northern Poland on Sunday sparking another round of thunderstorms across the region.

Areas from Germany into Denmark and Poland will see widespread showers and thunderstorms. Some of these storms will be capable of producing flash flooding, damaging winds and hail.

Thunderstorms will also impact eastern France, Switzerland, Austria and Czech Republic where severe weather will be more isolated.

Heat Continues in Madrid and Lyon

North and west of this corridor of storms seasonable temperatures are expected from the United Kingdom into northern and western France.

Showers and thundery rain will occur Saturday into Saturday across the United Kingdom and Ireland before more tranquil weather returns on Sunday with just a few leftover showers.

While the storms will bring some relief from the heat to locations such as Berlin and Warsaw, dangerous heat will continue from Italy into the Balkan Peninsula.

This heat will continue to scorch locations such as Milan, Rome, Bucharest, Sarajevo and Sofia into next week.
