After showers and storms spread across southeastern Europe to end the week, another round of rainfall will move into northern and central Europe on Sunday, including areas from Albania, Croatia and Italy, north into France, Germany and the United Kingdom.

With the Tour de France in full swing, the timing for showers in France is particularly unwelcome. The eighth and ninth legs from Tomblaine to Mulhouse in eastern France will be interrupted by occasional rain and thunderstorms on Sunday.

Some areas, especially in the higher elevations, could see another inch of rain by the end of the day.

The rain on Sunday will extend as far eastward as croatia and Albania, and will continue moving through areas in southern Europe that have already seen more than enough heavy rain this past week.
