This year’s summer will be warmer than usual for most of Europe, The Weather Company said in a report on Monday, with rainfall mostly being above average levels during the months of May and June in Southeast Europe.

“Although there is significant divergence in the various raw climate model output for summer, the calibrated versions … are both indicating widespread warmth this summer, especially across central and eastern Europe,” it said.

It also revised its earlier forecast for southern and eastern Europe and May is now expected to be cooler than previously expected.

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