Cullercoats

On Monday evening, two areas of high pressure will lie near the UK, one to the southwest of the UK 1033, and another over the Faeroes 1031, bringing a predominantly settled picture across the country. At the same time a shallow but broad area of low pressure 1010, will be centred over Scandinavia. This low will move away during Tuesday allowing high pressure to continue to build and become dominant over the UK. The high will remain in-situ during Wednesday before drifting into the North Sea on Thursday as a much deeper area of low pressure pushes across the North Atlantic and up towards Iceland. Strong winds will affect northeastern parts of Cullercoats on Monday evening and through the first part of Tuesday before easing. Thereafter, non-hazardous winds are expected throughout the remainder of this period across all areas, although strong winds will arrive across Fair Isle by Thursday evening


Niton

On Monday evening an area of high pressure 1033, will be centred across northern Niton. At the same time a broad but shallow area of low pressure 1001, will be located in the mid-Atlantic. As this period evolves the high will become dominant over the UK, remaining in situ during Wednesday before drifting into the North Sea on Thursday. The low in the Atlantic will weaken as another area of high pressure builds across the Azores and becomes dominant through the remainder of this period. Throughout this time, pressure will remain lower across Iberia. For most of this period non-hazardous winds are expected across all sea areas in Niton. However, at times it is likely that strong winds will affect parts of Biscay and Fitzroy, mainly near to the coastline of northern Spain. This is most likely to be during Monday evening, Tuesday and then again later on Thursday


Portpatrick

On Monday evening, two areas of high pressure will lie near the UK, one to the southwest of the UK 1033, and another over the Faeroes 1031, bringing a predominantly settled picture across the country. At the same time a shallow but broad area of low pressure 1010, will be centred over Scandinavia. This low will move away during Tuesday allowing high pressure to continue to build and become dominant over the UK. The high will remain in-situ during Wednesday before drifting into the North Sea on Thursday as a much deeper area of low pressure pushes across the North Atlantic and up towards Iceland. Non-hazardous winds are likely through most of this period across Portpatrick. However, from Wednesday evening winds will strengthen across western parts with gales or severe gales then developing across Rockall, Bailey, Faroes and Southeast Iceland through Thursday. Winds will remain non-hazardous across Fastnet, Lundy and Irish Sea
