Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Sat 01 Nov to 1800 UTC Tue 04 Nov Issued by the Met Office, on behalf on the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 302300 UTC

  1. Niton

    At the start of the period the weather across most of north west Europe will be dominated by a large area of low pressure, 974, which will be centred to the south of Iceland. This feature will be slow moving, but will gradually edge towards the north west British Isles by midday on Monday, filling slowly as it does so. During Tuesday the low is expected to split into two smaller centres located in the North Sea. Meanwhile a ridge of high pressure extends from the Azores High towards Iceland. Strong winds are likely to affect most of the Niton area for much of the forecast period. The strongest winds could arrive on Tuesday when gales are possible in Fitzroy, Shannon and Sole sea areas. At the same time however it is later on Tuesday when winds could moderate across eastern parts of Niton, at least for a time.
