  1. Niton

    At the start of the period an area of low pressure is expected to lies just east of the Shetland Islands. To the south the Azores High extends north-east into western Europe while another low lies in the mid-Atlantic roughly midway between Iceland and The Azores. The low east of Shetland is expected to move away into Scandinavia during Sunday with the low in mid-Atlantic edging slowly eastwards. Later on Sunday and into Monday this low is likely to track north east across the northern British Isles, then on into southern Scandinavia by the end of Monday. An intense high is expected to lie west of the British Isles by this time. On Saturday evening strong winds are expected north of 47 degrees north, these abating through Sunday. Strong winds may affect seas around north-western Iberia at times then late in the period strong to gale force winds are likely in Lundy, Fastnet, Irish Sea and Shannon.
