Extended Outlooks 1800 UTC Wed 26 Jun to 1800 UTC Sat 29 Jun Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 242300 UTC

  1. Niton

    Niton On Wednesday evening a large Atlantic anti-cyclone, 1039, extends eastwards across the UK. Meanwhile the seasonal low is slow moving over Iberia and an area of low pressure in the Baltic Sea slowly moves eastwards and fills. By midday Thursday an area of low pressure will develop just west of Fitzroy, 1013, this will become slow moving and deepen a little during Friday as the Atlantic ridge declines. A further anticyclone, 1029, will develop over the North Sea where it will remain slow moving through Saturday. Strong east or northeasterly winds are likely to develop north of 48 degrees North on Wednesday evening, although probably not affecting sea area Irish Sea. These strong winds will occasionally reach near gale strength overnight into Thursday. Winds slowly ease Thursday afternoon across the west and Thursday night through the English Channel. Hazardous winds are not expected for the remainder of the forecast period.
