Large parts of Europe, including France and Italy, will be hit with severe flooding, according to the latest BBC weather forecast. Meteorologist Chris Fawkes warned that parts of Europe will see “some quite nasty flooding” with at least 150ml of rain. However, by the middle to end of next week, temperatures will begin to rise again, as the UK and France see “temperatures above average for the time of year”.

Mr Fawkes said: “We have had some very heavy rain in the west of France over the last 24 hours.

“Parts of France have picked up 97ml of rain from this slow-moving weather system.

“That has brought some localised flooding.

“This weather front is pushing eastwards so the heaviest rain is going in across the south and east of France, and north-west Italy.”

Mr Fawkes warned that 50ml of rain will fall “widely” across Europe, adding: “But some places will get much more than that – 100ml, 150ml.”

This amount of rainfall is the equivalent of the average rainfall for the entire month of October for much of Western Europe. 

The weather presenter continued: “That is likely to lead to some flooding, and that could be some quite nasty flooding.

“So we will have to keep a close on this part of the world because it looks quite nasty for Monday.

“Spain, Portugal and western France, where the weather front has left, are brightening up with some sunshine.

“Blustery winds for the north coast of France, Belgium, Netherlands and northern Germany, with a mixture of sunshine and blustery showers blowing in here.”

The BBC weather presenter said that “another area of low pressure” will hit Europe on Tuesday, “bringing wet and windy weather across the UK”.

He added: “Rain from that same system will sweep across France, Belgium and Netherlands before reaching Germany and Demark, with the rain quite heavy at times.”

Mr Fawkes continued: “Beyond that area of rain, the weather becomes much sunnier.

“It turns a good deal milder with temperatures above average for the time of year in London and Paris.”

Temperatures in London will jump from 14C on Tuesday to 20C by the Friday.

This comes as fellow BBC weatherman Matt Taylor earlier warned told BBC Breakfast viewers that 70mph gusts are set to blast parts of the United Kingdom today.
