BBC Weather forecaster Sarah Keith-Lucas said wet weather is to be expected as we head into the weekend. A band of wet weather from the Atlantic will move into west Europe by the weekend. On the other side of the continent, southeastern Europe can expect some rain to move in from the Black Sea.
More central, the Alpine regions can expect some wet thunderstorms from Thursday.
Ms Keith Lucas said: “It has been very hot recently across southern and south eastern parts of Europe.
“Turkey broke its all-time temperature record with highs of 49C.
“Thankfully some slightly cooler air on the way across parts of Turkey for the coming few days.”

There is only expected to be a few outbreaks of rain throughout Thursday.
She continued: “Elsewhere across Europe we have got a lot of high pressure around.
“It is keeping things nice and dry and settled.
For many countries, temperatures will stay comfortably above 20C.
Going into the weekend, Ms Keith-Lucas said there would be more wet weather to strike and it would bring temperatures down in west Europe.
She said: “As we move towards the end of the week, you will notice these showers moving in from the Atlantic.
“That is going to bring some unsettled weather initially for the UK and then it is going to push its way across France and Germany.
“It will be a bit of a change and those temperatures are going to be coming down with the arrival of those showers.
