In Pictures: Europe's Weather

While some parts of the continent have been enjoying the warm sunshine, elsewhere the weather has been far less settled.

    Over the past few weeks, the weather across Europe has been generally quite unsettled.

    As is expected at this time of year, the south has seen plenty of hot sunshine. Elsewhere though, the sunshine has been accompanied by some sharp showers.

    Some of these showers have been very heavy, accompanied by lightning, hail and damaging winds.

    In the northwest of the continent, conditions have changed dramatically over the last couple of days, as a deep area of low pressure has developed.

    This has caused some part of Europe to turn unseasonably chilly, and led to the concern that this year's warm summery weather has already come to an end.
