Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Thu 02 Jul to 1800 UTC Sun 05 Jul Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 302300 UTC

  1. Niton

    This period will see a major area of low pressure resident in the central North Atlantic, with central pressure fluctuating between 995 and 1005 through the period. Meanwhile, to the south, the Azores high should periodically amplify to affect southern Niton. To the west, a shallow area of low pressure is expected to develop each day over Iberia, occasionally falling as low as 1015. A swathe of gales is likely to affect west Fitzroy late on Thursday, with these moving into west Sole and Shannon early Friday. During this time, strong winds are possible all other Niton areas, perhaps even reaching gale for a time over Irish Sea later. Winds will ease generally into Saturday, with occasional strong winds developing in Sole, Fastnet and Shannon, ahead of further gales potentially reaching west Niton to end the period later on Sunday

  2. Cullercoats

    This period will see a relatively static pressure pattern, with a major low pressure in the Atlantic south of Iceland held to the west by an intense high over eastern Europe with central pressure near 1030. Some small-scale lows are expected to develop between the two, with a 1007 low moving north into Arctic Ocean late Thursday, before a 1020 low develops over the Low Countries for a time Friday. Gales are likely in North Utsire and South Utsire late Thursday, with strong winds in the northeast North Sea, gradually dying away early Friday to leave no hazardous winds here and in the remainder of Cullercoats for a time. A swathe of strong winds is likely to spread northwards from Cullercoats English Channel areas late Friday, reaching western North Sea Cullercoats areas more generally on Saturday, before again easing to leave no hazardous winds on Sunday

  3. Portpatrick

    This period will see a relatively static pressure pattern, with a major low pressure in the Atlantic west of Rockall and Bailey, held to the west by an intense high over eastern Europe with central pressure near 1030. This main low may occasionally split into multiple centres, with the easternmost occasionally moving north through the western extremity of Portpatrick. Occasional strong winds are likely in Shannon and Rockall to end Thursday, ahead of a swathe of gales, perhaps briefly severe gales, moving north through Shannon, Rockall and Bailey on Friday. Strong winds are possible at this time in all other Portpatrick areas except Fair Isle, Faeroes and Southeast Iceland. Strong winds or gales will then continue on, to affect the far north of Portpatrick early Saturday, with strong winds possible in all other areas. A similar pattern is expected for Sunday, ahead of a further swathe of gales potentially moving into the far southwest later on Sunday
