Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Fri 31 Oct to 1800 UTC Mon 03 Nov Issued by the Met Office, on behalf on the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 292300 UTC

  1. Niton

    A large area of low pressure is expected off southern Iceland late on Friday, with central pressure near 975. This feature is expected to fill slightly on Saturday to near 980. The evolution of this low is then uncertain a time over the weekend, deepening and possibly dividing into two centres in the northern North Sea. These centres are then expected to amalgamate leave a large low with central pressure near 985 lying from Norway to the UK, perhaps with a rapidly deepening subsidiary low crossing into the southwest approaches of the UK on Monday. Gales are expected all areas north of 50 North Friday, with a swathe of gales or severe gales moving eastward through Saturday for all areas except southern Biscay and Fitzroy. Winds should generally ease for a time Sunday, strengthening later to strong winds or gales in northwest Niton, ahead of a risk of a swathe of severe gales into Fitzroy and Biscay later

  2. Cullercoats

    A large area of low pressure is expected off southern Iceland late on Friday, with central pressure near 975. This feature is expected to progress very slowly eastwards and fill slightly on Saturday to near 980. The evolution of this low is then uncertain a time over the weekend, deepening and possibly dividing into two centres on an axis through Bailey to Norwegian Basin on Sunday. These centres are then expected to amalgamate leave a large low with central pressure near 985 lying from Norway to the UK by Monday. Gales are expected all areas late Friday, with severe gales for a time north of 55 North. Winds will generally ease briefly early Saturday before a further swathe of severe gales affects areas north of 58 daytime Saturday and all Cullercoats areas overnight into Sunday. Winds will gradually ease through Sunday, leaving occasional strong winds all areas by Monday, most likely in the south

  3. Portpatrick

    A large area of low pressure is expected off southern Iceland late on Friday, with central pressure near 975. This feature is expected to progress very slowly eastwards and fill slightly on Saturday to near 980. The evolution of this low is then uncertain a time over the weekend, deepening and possibly dividing into two centres on an axis through Bailey to Norwegian Basin on Sunday. These centres are then expected to amalgamate leave a large low with central pressure near 985 lying from Norway to the UK, perhaps with a rapidly deepening subsidiary low crossing into the southwest approaches of the UK on Monday. Severe gales are expected late Friday into early Saturday in Atlantic Portpatrick areas, perhaps storm briefly Southeast Iceland, falling light here early Saturday. There is then a risk of gales or severe gales for all areas at times over the weekend, with the risk gradually lessening into the new working week with strong winds predominant
