MGO_REF_3205
Issued on 06 Feb 2015, 1354UTC
Building high pressure (1036hPa) is present just west of Scotland, while low pressure (995hPa) can be found
towards Greenland. Due to these systems a most WNW-rly airflow is being generated causing moderate winds. In
general cloudy weather is to be expected locally with an odd drop of rain. The next coming days the
aforementioned high pressure will shift a bit more NW, resulting in a tightening pressure gradient on its eastern
flank. Because of this winds will pick up accordingly by Saturday into Sunday. By early next week this system will
move to the SSE reaching the southern North Sea by Wednesday. Due to this event winds will gradually abate up
until halfway next week. Local conditions next 72 hrs: Wind: W-ly, veering to NW, moderate, increasing to strong
breeze on 7 February 12 UTC (risk of near gale). Sea temperature: 6-7C.
Gale warning (next 24 hrs): Nil
Windshift: Nil
Lightning risk: Low
Confidence: High
