  1. Niton

    On Thursday evening, a broad area of low pressure will be centred northwest of Ireland, moving southeast, with a trough extending east across the North Sea. A frontal zone moves around the south of the Low, overnight into Friday, and east through the English Channel. High pressure persists across much of continental Europe. Low pressure then gradually fills, sinking south Friday and Saturday, but continuing to dominate conditions across much of Niton as weak centres develop across southern North Sea and southwest UK. At the same time, a ridge of high pressure builds in the central Atlantic, amplifying towards Iceland, and then Scandinavia. Through Sunday, little change occurs, although high pressure ridge very slowly moves south. Strong winds, occasional gales expected west Niton late Thursday. These winds moving though English Channel, with isolated gales possible, easing Friday. Further strong winds moving into the northwest and also south Biscay, with gales possible Saturday into Sunday
