  1. Niton

    Areas of low pressure are expected to lie in the vicinity of Iceland throughout the four-day period, with central pressure around 965 during Saturday evening then rising to 985 by late Monday, before starting to fill and move northeastwards into the Arctic Ocean. This main low feature is cast in opposition to an area of high pressure covering much of continental Europe throughout, with a ridge of high pressure extending across to Fitzroy until Monday morning. Southwesterly gales will cover northern Shannon on Saturday night and through much of Sunday, before decreasing to strong by evening. Gales may also affect Irish Sea for a time during this period. On Monday strong southerly or southwesterly winds will cover more northwestern waters of Niton, before generally decreasing during thje course of Tuesday, although strong northerly or northeasterly winds may affect Irish Sea and Shannon during the afternoon and evening
