Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Thu 20 Feb to 1800 UTC Sun 23 Feb Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 182300 UTC

  1. Niton

    During Thursday evening and Friday a complex series of low pressure areas 956 will lie near Iceland, and remain in situ through Saturday and Sunday. The Azores high, becoming centred in Biscay and Fitzroy during Friday, will extend a weak ridge across the British Isles, then decline later Friday with a strong westerly flow developing across all sea areas in a broad shallow trough. A frontal trough will extend southwards during Friday. This trough will be replaced by another weak ridge later Saturday, then a travelling low pressure area is forecast to cross the British Isles during Sunday. Strong winds or gales are forecast on Thursday evening and Friday, although tending to moderate in South Biscay and South Fitzroy during Friday. Severe gales may spread to Shannon later Friday. Further strong winds or gales are expected widely during Saturday, except in South Biscay and South Fitzroy where winds will be lighter
