A split-flow pattern continues over Europe as ridge-over-low forces jets to swerve to N-Europe and N-Africa. Upstream of a progressive and pronounced trough over Russia, a gradual increase in mid-level heights forces a cut-off over the CNTRL Mediterranean to stay put. Brisk westerlies start to affect far W-Europe.
At the surface, a moist SE-erly flow affects the Balkan States along a decaying occlusion, while latest MIMIC data confirms a plume of modified subtropical air (TPW aoa 30 mm) to spread east, affecting the Iberian Peninsula, W-France and UK/Ireland during the forecast.
