Cullercoats

A ridge of high pressure is expected over the North Sea late Sunday, although this will decline eastwards as a large and complex area of low pressure dominates the North Atlantic, centred to the southwest of Iceland. This low is expected to fill early next week, but with southward trough extension leaving several shallow low centres west of Ireland later Monday, while the high intensifies once more over eastern Europe. By mid-week, this high pressure area remains in place, while the low pressure deepens and extends southwards to Fitzroy by Tuesday, with central pressure 990. Then on Wednesday the low centre will extend a trough across the UK. Strong southeasterly winds will develop in Cullercoats during Sunday evening and through Monday with risk of gales in the north and northeast. Similar strength winds are expected to persist through Tuesday and Wednesday with risk of gales in the northeast and north
