A complex upper-level low still governs the weather over much of Europe. Its individual centers move from the Channel into Southern France, from Bosnia into Western Romania and from Lithuania into Northern Poland, respectively. The former two also induce weak surface cyclogeneses ahead of their paths in response to travelling vorticity maxima aloft. While cool air is present in the range of these upper-level low centers, very warm air from Turkey spreads over the Black Sea, the Ukraine and Belarus. A moderate mid-level jet surrounds the upper-level low to the South and stretches from Southern Itay across the Eastern Mediterranean to the Black Sea. Anticyclonic influence dominates from Iberia across the British Isles into Scandinavia.
