Issued 1100 Thursday 24th May 2012


High pressure is to the north of the country through Saturday, with a brisk easterly flow affecting most areas. The airmass is a dry one. Low pressure southwest of Ireland will be nudging a cold front northeast into southern Ireland and southwest England later in the day.

For most the day is going to be fair with lots of sunshine throughout. Visibility will be good overall too.

Later in the day cloud may increase in southern Ireland and the extreme southwest of England, perhaps bringing a few showers here as the cold front approaches.

Winds will be mainly E 20-27kt (F5-F6) in the southern half of the UK and Ireland, ESE 10-12kt (F3-F4) in Scotland.



The area of low pressure is to the south through Sunday, again edging very slowly northwards. A weak warm front approaches eastern coasts of England, but the high remains to the east of Scotland.

The day is going to be mainly fair for most of the UK and Ireland. There will be lots of sunshine throughout, the best of it tending to be in more western areas.

Cloud may increase on eastern coasts of England at times as the warm front approaches, although confidence in this is low.

Cloudier skies across southern Ireland, Wales and southwest England in the afternoon as some showery outbreaks of rain head slowly northwards, most of them fairly light, although an odd thundery one breaking out over Wales and the Midlands.

Winds mainly E-SE 15-20kt (F5) across the southern UK, E 10-12kt (F3-F4) in the north, although tending to ease in the south later.
