Issued by the Met Office, on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 282300 UTC

Portpatrick

Wednesday evening, a broad area of low pressure is centred 995 in the Norwegian Sea. Another shallow trough is centred near Bailey and a ridge extending out of the Azores High lies Sole eastwards through the English Channel. A heat low also exists over Spain. By midday Thursday, a similar pressure pattern persists except the trough near Bailey develops into a low centred 1006 over Western Isles. By midday Friday, the ridge of high pressure declines back to the Azores, whilst another area of low pressure from the Atlantic combines with the Western Isles Low to form a broader area of low pressure centred 1001 over western Ireland. This low deepens further overnight and into Saturday, potentially reaching 995 in the Irish Sea but with some uncertainty at present. Strong winds are likely to develop from Friday onwards across parts of Rockall, Malin, Hebrides, south Bailey and Fair Isle, perhaps locally gale for a time
