  1. Niton

    During Thursday evening and Friday a low pressure centre will lie to the south of Iceland 986 with a trough extension down the North Sea. A high pressure area will be centred over Russia 1023 with an extending ridge running across Europe to the Azores high pressure 1029, centred west of Fitzroy. Pressure will be low in the Mediterranean Sea. There is low confidence in the synoptic pattern on Saturday and Sunday with low pressure centred somewhere in the region of the North Sea or over the UK, then extending slowly southwards into Europe on Sunday. Winds will tend to strengthen on Thursday evening and Friday in all sea areas with near gales possible later Friday in Irish Sea, Fastnet and Shannon. With low confidence on Saturday and Sunday winds will likely be strong to near gale at times, with lower risk of occasional gales, or severe gales in Atlantic sea areas
