BBC Weather meteorologist Stav Danaos said conditions will be very unsettled for the “foreseeable future” across the continent. Mr Danaos said: “The north and northwest of Europe look very unsettled for the foreseeable future, very autumnal indeed thanks to a powerful jet whipping up areas of low pressure.
“It will bring spells of wet and windy weather that will spread west to east.
“Further south it’s largely dry with plenty of sunshine beside the odd shower or thunderstorm.
“We’ve had slightly cooler winds across the Balkans towards Greece and islands.
“Across the eastern Meditteranean, it’s quite sunny and warm.
“Temperatures will slowly recover across Greece into next week.”
He continued: “Into France, the UK, the low countries, and Scandinavia it’s going to be very unsettled with a band of rain spreading its way eastwards.
“On Saturday, a very disruptive area of low pressure could bring some very wet and windy weather to the northwest of the continent.”
Britain’s warm spell is over as temperatures are set to fall to average for autumn – and wind and rain sweep the nation.
UK weather: Met Office forecast outbreaks of rain and winds
As the UK moves into autumn, heavy rainfall is expected throughout the week, with western Scotland, Wales and northwest England expected to be the wettest areas.
Winds are expected to reach highs of 69mph on Wednesday in the east of England and the whole of the UK will experience winds averaging 35mph until the weekend.
There will be a general mix of sunshine and showers throughout the week, but temperatures will be lower than last week when the south of England reached the high 20s.
Temperatures are returning to average for this time of year, with 18C the highest temperature expected across the UK throughout the week.

Some areas will experience up to 25mm of rain a day, most likely in eastern Scotland and eastern England, and more widely people can expect between 10-15mm of rainfall.
On Wednesday, north-west England and south-west Scotland could see up to 30mm of rain in just 12 hours.
Met Office spokesman Stephen Dixon said: “Tuesday, in particular, there’s a band of heavy rain moving into the southwest of the UK, the South East will hold on to the drier conditions longer but this band of rain moves eastward across the UK.”
He added: “There is a low-pressure system developing to the northwest of the UK which at the moment is on track to bring some showers into Northern Ireland early on Thursday, and the west coast of Scotland.”
