An outbreak of arctic maritime airmass is ongoing over much of western and central Europe in the wake of the large trough. Prevailing northwesterly flow will overspread a belt from the Atlantic towards northern Balkans. In this belt, unstable conditions will prevail with scattered to widespread low topped showers and thunderstorms. Also thanks to the strong pressure gradient between a high centered over the Atlantic and a low centered over the Baltic states, strong background flow with widespread gusts over 20 m/s and isolated gusts over 25 m/s is forecast.
