WEEKEND WEATHER FORECAST
===========================

Issued 2000 Thursday 12th July 2012

Saturday:
An unstable northwest flow covers the whole of the country through Saturday. A ridge of high pressure will be building into the west of Ireland later.
The day is going to be a showery one with an area of more persistent rain close to The Wash at first on Saturday morning. This is going to be clearing eastwards to leave plenty of cloud and some scattered showers behind.
Although the afternoon brings more in the way of breaks in the cloud, there will be heavy showers developing too. The heaviest are likely to be across south Wales, southern England and parts of northern England. More scattered showers elsewhere in the UK and Ireland.
Visibility will be good overall but poor at times in the showers. Very few showers over the sea.
Winds mainly SW F5 in the eastern Channel, but tending to be NW F4 elsewhere, but F6 in the west.http://www.weatherweb.net/tvweather/pres2.gif


Sunday:
The unstable flow remains over Scotland, but a ridge of high pressure will be building in across the rest of the UK and Ireland and this is likely to bring a more settled few hours of weather.
There will be showers affecting Scotland, some of them heavy as the troughs move from west to east, and so most of the showers on northern and western coasts. An odd shower in Ireland too, for for much of England, Wales and southern Scotland the day is going to be fair with some good spells of sunshine developing. Visibility will be good, although moderate in any showers.
Winds mainly W-WNW F4-F5 but F6 at times on northern and western coasts.

I've seen you write very persuasively on the importance of local knowledge when forecasting sailing weather. Can you let me know if your local knowledge (and/or that of your colleague) covers the Firth of Clyde, which is where I sail at the moment?
