“The warm and dry summer pattern has persisted across much of northern/western Europe and Scandinavia in July,” said Todd Crawford, the forecaster’s chief meteorologist.

“We expect this to continue into August, although there are now some indications that the low pressure ... may give way to higher pressures at some point in August, which would reduce the risks for extreme warmth over at least far western Europe.”

The Weather Company, owned by IBM, provides weather forecasts aimed at the commodities and energy sectors.
