Thanks to all of you who have registered and become members of my new SWIS service. It's safe to say that take up has been beyond my greatest expectations, so 'thank you'.

If you haven't joined SWIS, now is your chance to get a free 14-day trial. I want the service to be much more than just another weather forecast site and that's why SWIS members have been reading and watching videos all week about the coming weekend and the conditions it might bring.

To register go to http://www.sailingweather.co.uk and don't forget you can receive forecasts by email and your mobile telephone as well as on the internet.

Onto Weather School matters and I have announce the data for the autumn Schools. Sailing Weather (Part 1) will be held on Sunday 16th October 2011, and Sailing Weather (Part 2) will be held on Saturday 5th November 2011.

Issued: 3pm Thursday 9th June 2011

A slack pressure flow across the country on Saturday. The weak area of low pressure situated to the east of Scotland, and its associated occluded front, will be bringing an area of cloud and some outbreaks of rain through the morning across northern and eastern Scotland, as well as parts of northeast England. These only slowly fading through the afternoon. eastern coasts could stay cloudy and damp throughout with poor visibility at times.
To the south the ridge of high pressure will bring brighter weather, although there will also be some showers. The showers should be fairly well scattered, although an odd heavier one can't be ruled out. Southern and western coasts may stay dry throughout the day.
Towards evening cloud will be increasing across the far southwest of Ireland and southwest England ahead of the warm front to the southwest.
Winds mainly W F2-F3 in the south, but F4 at times close to the low over Scotland. There is a low chance of some sea breezes setting in around the coasts of England and Wales.


An area of low pressure is going to be centred to the south of Ireland at midday on Sunday. This area is heading northeastwards, taking fronts with it.
Cloud, rain and gusty winds associated with the low will be affecting many areas in the morning. The focus for this rain is likely to be in the west and south, and again some of this could be heavy here. More northern and eastern areas are likely to start the day drier, although cloud and rain will be spreading into all areas by late afternoon.
By then brighter, drier weather will be moving into Ireland, Wales and western England, although it may bring some showers with it. The low clears to the northeast, taking the cloud and rain with it.
Winds mainly SE 10-12kt (F3) in the north and first, but becoming SE 18-25kt (F5-F6) as the low pressure moves through (although cyclonic for many) , then becoming SW'ly before veering N-NW 16-20kt (F4-F5) in the west later. The winds could get to 35kt (F8) on western and southwest coasts of Wales and England as well as south and eastern Ireland.
