Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Mon 24 Nov to 1800 UTC Thu 27 Nov Issued by the Met Office, on behalf on the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 222300 UTC

  1. Niton

    Throughout the forecast period changes will be slow. On Monday evening a ridge of high pressure will cover much of north west Europe, with areas of low pressure held well to the west of Iceland. These Atlantic lows and their associated fronts will struggle to make progress eastwards as a large, blocking area of high pressure becomes established over western Russia and extends its influence westwards. By Thursday evening the Atlantic lows will still be held well to the west of the British Isles, as the eastern European block holds firm. Early in the period strong winds are likely in Biscay and Fitzroy, and possibly western parts of the English Channel. These should ease during Tuesday and through Wednesday. During Thursday strong to gale force winds will develop across all areas as the Atlantic systems run into the blocking high.
