Summary

Pressure will remain high from the Azores across to southeastern europe, whilst increasingly active areas of low pressure move eastwards from Iceland across to Norway. Between these pressure systems the mild westerly airflow will persist, but will tend to increase with time, particularly in the north, where there will be a risk of severe gales or storms come late Tuesday or early Wednesday.
