  1. Niton

    On Sunday evening a ridge will extend northeast from the Azores high across much of the Niton area, but with low pressure centred near Bailey maintaining a cyclonic flow in the north. The cyclonic flow is then expected to transfer further south for a time on Monday, but with the ridge becoming re-established across much of the area by midnight Tuesday. Anticyclone then expected to move northeast to be centred near Brest by Wednesday morning, then current expectations are for the high to transfer east through northern France during Wednesday, allowing a more cyclonic flow to return to the northwest of the Niton area. Near gale to gale force winds expected to develop in the far northwest of the forecast area on Sunday evening and early on Monday, then slowly moderate by Monday evening. Further gales are then currently forecast to develop the northwest of the Niton area on Wednesday
