Thunderstorm Outlook: Fri 12 - Wed 17 Aug

It is time for a long-term outlook update again. Currently, unstable airmass is quite far over Italy and the Balkan, as well as the Benelux and Germany. Over Spain some isolated thunderstorms are also still possible. However, nothing looks quite impressive at the moment. During the weekend, destabilization will take place over the Iberian Peninsula at the approach of a weak upper low, and more widespread storms will be occurring there. After the weekend the unstable airmass may slowly expand northward if the high pressure area over northwestern Europe starts to weaken. Overall it looks like there will be some chance to observe thunderstorms the coming days, but it isn't a powerful setup.

Quick Sunday night update: the destabilisation over Spain has not happened, so no storms there, but central Europe especially northern Italy again will see storm activity this night.
