The main macrosynoptic feature will remain in the form of a cut-off low and long-wave trough residing over the eastern Atlantic. Center of the cut-off will move towards western Iberia, with strong mid to upper tropospheric flow covering its southern and eastern flanks. A belt of southerly flow will stretch from northern Africa all the way towards western Scandinavia. With this flow, a plume of steep mid-level lapse rates is advected northwards. Towards east, a ridge will cover much of the Central Europe and the Mediterranean.
Closer to the surface, center of the low will remain off the coastline of NW Iberia. A wavy frontal boundary will stretch from Spain towards W France, SE England, Denmark and further into Scandinavia. Ahead of it, a WAA regime will continue over much of Western and Central Europe.
