  1. Niton

    Wednesday night into Thursday a weak ridge moves east across the southern UK, reaching the North Sea Thursday night as an Atlantic low approaches the UK from the west. Low is currently expected to become elongated, centred approximately southern Ireland and southwest England midday Friday, around 982, but confidence is low. The low is likely to move east, reaching Holland by midnight Friday, deepening approximately 979. Saturday low continues east, and a ridge extends south across the northern UK. Late Saturday afternoon new low may move southeastwards across southwest Ireland, around 990. No strong winds initially. Through Thursday strong to near gale force winds are likely to extend northeastwards across the Niton region, risk of gales developing later across western areas. Friday west or northwest winds are likely to strengthen gale to severe gale force across many western areas, with occasional near gales or gales elsewhere. Saturday gales probably abate, only to possibly return to northwestern areas late afternoon
