A pair of tricky storm systems will present problems across Europe this week.
The first storm is already underway as a low pressure system is in the process of moving southward across Italy and the western Mediterranean.
Fresh on the heels of two Mediterranean storms that caused chaos in the past two weeks, this storm will again present dangerous weather for those in its path.
In fact, northern Africa could again be impacted as well as with heavy rainfall possible along the eastern coastline of Algeria and across northern Tunisia. Tunisia faced deadly flooding from a Mediterranean storm less than 10 days ago.
Daily showers and thunderstorms are expected across Sicily, Sardinia and the much of the remainder of Italy right into the weekend. Daily downpours can cause flash flooding and repeated downpours in the same areas will heighten the risk for mudslides.
A second concern will be a storm that may rapidly strengthen somewhere near the British Isles and North Sea this weekend.
A lot of uncertainty with this event but the potential exists for locally damaging winds somewhere from Ireland and the United Kingdom into Netherlands, northeast France, Belgium and Germany.
Rainfall will be a lesser concern although some local flooding can be ruled out at this stage.
The combination of rain and wind could produce weekend travel delays across the region.

A deadly lightning strike claimed the lives of at least six children at a school in Tanzania on Wednesday.
Heavy rain will fall across parts of eastern Australia into this weekend bringing relief to areas that continue to endure drought conditions.
While there are no tropical cyclones expected to make landfall through at least Thursday, there is plenty to talk about.
This wintry scene in New Zealand will leave many wondering when the first snow will fall in their area.
The short answer is maybe, but regardless of whether a developing area of showers and thunderstorms to the east of Guam ever becomes a super typhoon, it will pose serious risks parts of the basin over the next 7-14 days.
Records continue to fall across the United Kingdom as the summer as a whole has been declared the joint hottest on record.
