    On Tuesday evening, high pressure is centred across Scandinavia and the North Sea, with a ridge extending south towards France. Various deep low pressure systems will also be situated in the Mid-Atlantic, slowly moving northeast. By midday Wednesday, low pressure centre 952 will lie west of Shannon, with weak frontal bands stalling across the UK. Confidence is then low with the westward extent of high pressure, and track of low pressure systems Thursday.

High pressure then persists during Friday with Biscay low gradually filling. Winds strengthen across west Niton Wednesday, with gales likely. Severe gales possible across Shannon for a time. Strong winds gradually ease Thursday, but remaining near gale to gale south of Biscay low. Further near gale to gales likely for a time across Shannon Friday
