BBC Weather forecaster Louise Lear said Europe can expect more hot weather across the continent. This is most notably in Spain which can expect to see temperatures just shy of 40C this week. Elsewhere in the continent, it remains mostly dry with parts of eastern Europe seeing some wet weather and occasional thunderstorms.

Ms Lear said: “High pressure is expected to build in from the west of Europe over the next few days and quieten the weather story down.

“Thunderstorms could return as we head into the weekend.

“You can see quite clearly where the showers are at the moment.

“They are stretching out of Hungary and the Balkans and they will gradually move to Romania and Bulgaria by the time we get to Tuesday afternoon.
