BBC Weather forecaster, Ms Willetts, said there is an amber warning in place across Denmark for “intense heat”. It comes as thunderstorms are forecast to hit parts of Europe this weekend. The BBC Weather meteorologist added low pressure will move across the Balkans in the coming days, resulting in thunderstorms and heavy showers. 

Ms Willetts said: “We have seen some intense thunderstorms across northern and western Europe and some flash flooding in recent days.

“As the heat gradually breaks down those thunderstorms are gradually migrating their way eastwards.

“So there are still some severe thunderstorms around as that heat breaks and it is taking a while to lose that humidity.

“With high pressure in the north, it is still warm and dry for southern parts of Scandinavia.

“There are still amber warnings out in Denmark for the intense heat.

“In the south and east, we will start to see that heat diminish a little bit.”

She continued: “There is lots of dry and settled weather around, but it is advancing further southwards.

“It will move across the Balkans at the weekend and give some bigger showers and thunderstorms.

The BBC meteorologist added: “Temperatures are still into the high-20s in Paris and the mid-20s in London even by the time we get to the weekend.

“But they are tailing off and the humidity will ease off a little bit as well.

“We keep the heat and the sunshine for Madrid and for Rome and Athens as well.

“Fewer showers will be around for Moscow, but perhaps a few more with those thunderstorms in Berlin.”

It comes as the UK has been hit by a week-long heatwave with temperatures soaring into the high 30s.

Although thermometers are starting to tumble, thunderstorms are still likely to spark up across parts of Britain over the coming days.
