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

  1. Niton

    A large area of low pressure is expected to lie in the vicinity of Iceland throughout the four-day period, with central pressure falling from near 980 late Friday to near 960 on Sunday, before starting to fill and transit northeast into the Arctic Ocean. This main low feature is cast in opposition to a declining Azores high in continental western Europe near 1025, and also a more intense high over the Baltic States near 1040. No hazardous winds are expected south of 47 North throughout the period. Occasional strong winds are expected in the Niton English Channel areas and Sole throughout, while Lundy, Fastnet, Irish Sea and Shannon will see an increasing risk of gales through Saturday, perhaps severe Irish Sea and Shannon. This risk of gales and severe gales will generally recede to strong winds early Sunday, however further gales are possible in these northern Niton areas later Sunday and into Monday

  2. Cullercoats

    A large area of low pressure is expected to lie in the vicinity of Iceland throughout the four-day period, with central pressure falling from near 980 late Friday to near 960 on Sunday, before starting to fill and transit northeast into the Arctic Ocean. This main low feature is cast in opposition to an intense high over the Baltic States near 1040 throughout. Occasional strong winds are possible in all Cullercoats areas late Friday, with a swathe of gales spreading from the northwest to all areas save the English Channel Cullercoats areas through Saturday. Meanwhile, north of 55 North, winds are expected to increase to severe gales and perhaps storm force winds for a time. These peak winds will ease into early Sunday, leaving widespread strong winds and occasional gales across the Cullercoats area, with gales then once again becoming more sustained and widespread north of 55 North on Monday, perhaps severe Fair Isle later

  3. Portpatrick

    A large area of low pressure is expected to lie in the vicinity of Iceland throughout the four-day period, with central pressure falling from near 980 late Friday to near 960 on Sunday, before starting to fill and transit northeast into the Arctic Ocean. This main low feature is cast in opposition to a declining Azores high in continental western Europe near 1025, and also a more intense high over the Baltic States near 1040. Occasional strong winds are possible in all Portpatrick areas through the period, although winds may periodically fall light in Southeast Iceland. Gales are possible at first in Atlantic Portpatrick areas late Friday, increasing severe gale north of 52 North and then storm later Saturday and into Sunday, especially Rockall, Malin, Hebrides. This risk of storm-force winds and severe gales will generally recede to occasional gales early Sunday, however further severe gales are possible in Rockall, Malin, Hebrides into Monday, perhaps also Fair Isle later
