Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Wed 22 Oct to 1800 UTC Sat 25 Oct Issued by the Met Office, on behalf on the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 202300 UTC

  1. Niton

    At first anticyclone, pressure 1030, centred over southern Biscay, extending a weak ridge of high pressure north across the North Sea. Thursday the ridge collapses as it and the anticyclone moves east; by midday anticyclone reaches west coast of France, pressure 1026, then weakens Thursday night. Friday and overnight a cold front moves southeast across the region, with associated waves and therefore slack pressure patterns. Saturday, following the front, an Atlantic anticyclone extends east across the south of the Niton region, while the north of the region is influenced by a deep low to the south of Iceland. At first, and until late Thursday, north of 50N isolated strong winds. Then isolated strong winds again Friday across Thames, Dover, Wight, and Shannon. Saturday widespread strong winds gradually extend east across Lundy, Fastnet, Irish Sea and Shannon, with near gales developing later across Irish Sea and Fastnet, perhaps gales by 1800 across Shannon

    Initially low 980 west of Iceland, anticyclone 1030 southern Biscay, with an associated ridge extending north across the North Sea. Thursday low moves across Iceland, becomes slow moving and multi-centred, while the ridge collapses as it and the anticyclone moves east; by midday anticyclone reaches west coast of France, pressure 1026, then weakens Thursday night. Friday the Icelandic low gradually amalgamates into one deep centre, expected midnight 961 southwest of Iceland. Saturday deep low moves east, expected by 1800 around 62N 16W, near 960. Wednesday night north of 58N near gale force or gale force winds, south of 58N occasional strong winds. Thursday occasional strong winds, mainly north of 55N, near gales likely Fair Isle. Friday occasional strong winds, overnight near gales or gales temporarily affect Fisher and German Bight. Saturday near gales to gales spread east across the northern North Sea, risk of severe gales reaching Fair Isle. Strong winds affect the mid North Sea, elsewhere strong winds abate
