Rain to Avoid Dublin, London, Berlin, Kiev This Weekend

Dry weather will continue to dominate places from the United Kingdom to Ukraine and the Baltic states this weekend before a change in the weather pattern unfolds next week.

While a storm system spreads some showers and thunderstorms from southern and central France to the Alps and Italy this weekend, high pressure will continue to keep rain out of places to the north.

The exceptions are far northern Scotland and coastal Norway. A weak storm system will also attempt to dot eastern Poland and the Baltics with an very isolated shower on Sunday, but most places will stay dry.

Otherwise, umbrellas can be left at home this weekend in Dublin, London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, Copenhagen, Warsaw and Kiev. Rain will stay absent underneath a partly to mostly sunny sky.

Showers and thunderstorms in central France will approach Paris on Sunday, while a couple of showers threaten to put a damper on the end of Oktoberfest.

Cool mornings, especially to start Saturday, will be followed by seasonable to slightly above-normal temperatures in the afternoon. The weather will be ideal for outdoor activities, such as the National Football League's game in London.

A storm approaching Europe and delivering rain to Portugal, western Spain and western France to end the weekend will be sign that the weather pattern will soon change.

Europe: Sunny in Spain

The area of high pressure will break down, allowing an active storm track to resume across Europe next week and returning at least showers to many of the same areas experiencing dry weather this weekend. Gusty winds will also accompany each storm system onshore.

AccuWeather will continue to provide more details on next week's unsettled weather in the coming days.
