  1. Niton

    On Saturday evening a ridge of high pressure will extend northeast from the mid Atlantic and into the northern North Sea, with an anticyclone becoming established over the Norwegian Basin on Monday. An area of low pressure will develop across northern France during the day on Sunday and drift west through the English Channel and on into southwest England by late Sunday, to be lying over sea area Shannon by late Monday. Troughs of low pressure will affect Biscay and Fitzroy during Saturday, Sunday and Monday, with a more active frontal trough moving east into Fitzroy, Sole, and Shannon later in the day on Tuesday. No gales are expected in the Niton area through the forecast period, however winds are expected to become strong at times in Thames and Dover on Sunday, and over Fitzroy, Sole, and Shannon during Tuesday. Portpatrick On Saturday evening a ridge of high pressure will extend northeast from mid Atlantic and into the northern North Sea, with an anticyclone becoming established over the Norwegian Basin on Monday.

A ridge of high pressure will persist across the north of the area on Monday, but with an active frontal trough moving east into Shannon later on Tuesday. Winds will be strong at times in Rockall and Southeast Iceland on Saturday night and into Sunday, with strong winds developing through Bailey, Fair Isle, Faeroes, and Southeast Iceland on Monday.

    On Saturday evening a ridge of high pressure will extend northeast from the mid Atlantic and into the northern North Sea, with an anticyclone becoming established over the Norwegian Basin on Monday. This is expected to drift slowly north during Tuesday, maintaining a ridge of high pressure over the north of the area. Low pressure will develop across northern France on Sunday and drift west through the English Channel and on into southwest England by late Sunday to lie over Shannon by late Monday. Further troughs of low pressure are expected to move slowly west through northern France on Tuesday. A mostly quiet spell of weather with no gales expected over the Cullercoats area through the forecast period, but a risk that strong winds will develop for a time on Sunday in Humber and Thames, and perhaps in Fair Isle during Tuesday.
