Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Sat 24 Aug to 1800 UTC Tue 27 Aug Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 222300 UTC

  1. Niton

    On Sunday evening high pressure extends northeast from the Azores across Niton. On Sunday into Monday a deep low pressure system in the Mid-Atlantic is forecast to move slowly north or northeast to lie southwest of Iceland at midday on Monday. The low then becomes slow moving and remains near southwest Iceland for Tuesday. This will cause the high pressure to decline slowly southeastwards on Monday and Tuesday. Strong or near gale force winds are possible across the south of Fitzroy on Sunday and Monday, easing on Monday night. Also an area of strong or near gale force winds is likely to spread into Shannon later on Sunday. This will continue to spread east overnight but gradually decrease. Areas of strong winds are still possible across northwest Niton on Monday, but these should ease overnight and no strong winds are expected across the region on Tuesday

  2. Cullercoats

    On Saturday evening a low pressure system is expected to lie north of the Faeroes 1002, whilst high pressure extends westwards from eastern Europe across Cullercoats. Overnight this low will move away northeastwards allowing pressure to build from the southwest, leaving a slack flow across the region for Sunday. On Monday a deep low pressure system in the mid Atlantic is forecast to move north or northeast to lie to the southwest of Iceland at midday on Monday. This low then becomes slow moving and remains near southwest Iceland on Tuesday. Winds are generally expected to be below warning strength on Saturday evening and Sunday, although strong winds may affect east Viking, North Utsire and South Utsire at times. During Monday morning near gale force winds are likely to spread into the far northwest of Cullercoats. Winds gradually easing in the evening, but potentially remaining strong in the far north of the region into Tuesday

  3. Portpatrick

    On Saturday evening a low pressure is expected to lie north of Faeroes 1002. Overnight this low will move away northeastwards allowing high pressure to build across the region from the Azores. On Sunday into Monday a deep low pressure system in the mid Atlantic is forecast to move slowly north or northeast to lie southwest of Iceland at midday on Monday, causing the ridge of high pressure to decline steadily southeastwards. This low then becomes slow moving and remains near southwest Iceland for Tuesday. Strong or near gale force winds are likely to be clearing northeastwards from the north of Faeroes and east of Southeast Iceland during Saturday night. Later on Sunday strong or near gale force winds are expected to spread eastwards across Portpatrick with gales likely in north Rockall, Bailey and Southeast Iceland. Winds gradually easing on Monday, but generally remaining strong through the rest of the period with near gales continuing across the far northwest of Portpatrick
