BBC Weather forecaster Helen Willetts said Europe must be prepared for heavy rain across the continent. Orange warnings for wind and rain have been issued for parts of the Alps as well. Temperatures are also expected to fall and remain cooler for the majority of the week, especially central Europe.

Ms Willetts said: “Autumn has arrived across the north west of Europe.

“That is how it feels at the moment as we have seen quite a significant drop in temperature.

“We have got low-pressure battering parts of Iceland, orange warnings in place for severe blizzards,

“We will feel the effects of those bands of rain and strong winds as they push there way across the United Kingdom and across Scandinavia.
