An active weather pattern will continue over Southern Europe as large scale cyclonic vortex persists over Central Europe, shifting eastwards with several short-wave troughs rotating around its periphery. The first one will affect Iberia during the day, the second one will cross from Italy towards the Balkans and the latter one will translate towards the Baltic states. Enhanced mid and upper tropospheric flow is simulated at the southern flank of the vortex. Another significant trough is expected to affect Scandinavia during the forecast period, while two ridges are forecast over the Atlantic and over Russia. As such, general synoptic scale situation slightly resembles an "Omega" pattern albeit it is not very stable with weakening vortex. Main frontal zone will lie over the Mediterranean and Balkans with weak temperature gradients over the rest of Europe, perhaps apart from Scandinavia.
