LONDON (Reuters) - Below-normal temperatures are expected in Britain and parts of Norway, France and Germany from August to October, with higher than average temperatures across the rest of Europe, The Weather Company said on Monday.

"As with many recent summers during the past decade, North Atlantic blocking has become the dominant player again as we get into the heart of the season," The Weather Company's chief meteorologist Todd Crawford said in a statement.

"While the cool-west, warm-east pattern has become the preferred pattern going forward this summer, warmer northeast Atlantic ocean temperatures and the excess global heat left over from the historically strong El Nino event have meant that even western Europe has been slightly warmer and drier than we originally expected."

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