Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Sat 23 Feb to 1800 UTC Tue 26 Feb Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 212300 UTC

  1. Niton

    During Saturday evening a large area of high pressure, 1043, will lie centred over Poland, with a deep area of low pressure, 970, northwest of Iceland, and associated frontal troughs near Ireland and west Scotland. Another deep low pressure area, 958, will become established in mid-Atlantic overnight into Sunday moving north towards Iceland. A similar pressure pattern will persist through the rest of the forecast period, with high pressure over Europe extending ridge conditions across much of Britain and continental Europe, while deep low pressure areas develop in the mid-Atlantic, pushing up towards Iceland, creating transient ridges of higher pressure in-between them. Strong winds soon developing in the west on Saturday evening, increasing to gale force at times in Sole and Shannon early Sunday, easing Sunday evening. Further strong winds developing in the northwest early Monday easing overnight into Tuesday. Further strong winds, perhaps gales then developing far west later Tuesday
