The next Sailing Weather School will be held in January. I have a few places remainin, but they are filling quickly. A place at Weather School makes an ideal Christmas present, so go on, ask for one in your stocking!. Part 1 will be on Saturday 30th January and I have kept the prices the same at £115 for the full day (including lunch). Over 300 people have now been through Weather School, and you can find out more and book your place online at http://www.weatherschool.co.uk

Have a good one,

A deep area of low pressure is going to be to the northwest of Ireland at midday on Saturday This is going to be drifting eastwards and will be over northern England in the evening. The trough over southern Ireland will be moving quickly east and will pass through Wales and then into central and western England in the evening.
The weak ridge of high pressure over most of the country should ensure that most of England, Wales and Scotland have a fine and chilly start to Saturday. There could be a few morning fog patches around, but these will be clearing quickly. There should be good spells of sunshine throughout the morning in these areas.
Western coasts are likely to have a few showers being blown in on the wind, these turning heavy over western Scotland and western Wales by lunchtime.
For Ireland the morning starts more unsettled with showers merging to longer periods of rain. Through the afternoon the rain spreads eastwards to be into western Scotland, Wales and southwest England by late afternoon, and it may become heavy here as well. Brighter weather follows to the west of Ireland. The rest of England, Wales and eastern Scotland should be dry until dark.
Winds will be increasing in the west, with gales in exposed places and the western English Channel later. Mainly W-SW 7-10kt (f3) in the ridge at first in the east, W-SW 20-28kt (F6) through Ireland. Increasing winds in the west in the afternoon, mainly S-SW 18-25kt (F5-F6) then NW 19-25kt (f^0 as the front passes, although with gale force gusts. Backing to be mainly S 12-17kt (F4-F5) in the east by late afternoon.


As the area of low pressure slips into central France, a N-NE flow is going to be developing over much of the country. Showery troughs will be pushing southwestwards with the flow as a weak ridge of high pressure builds into western Ireland.
Generally the day is going to be fair for many. The eastern coasts of Scotland and England may have some showers blown in from the sea from time to time. For most of England, Scotland and Wales through the day should be fair.
Thicker cloud is likely to encroach Ireland through the day, and there is a low risk of an odd shower for Northern Ireland and perhaps southwest Scotland later.
Winds through most places will be from the N-NE 12-18kt (F4-F5) although perhaps 20-28kt (F6) over central and southeastern England at first, and I cannot rule out the risk of some gales on the coasts of East Anglia and southeast England.
