High Pressure Block to Develop over Northeastern Atlantic

An upper-level blocking pattern is forecast to develop over the Northeastern North Atlantic over the next several days which will deflect low tracks northward towards Greenland and Iceland providing a period of lighter winds around the UK, North Sea, English Channel and Bay of Biscay.

In addition a cut-off low southwest of the Azores will cause a semi-stationary low to meander over the east-central North Atlantic with strong to gale force winds likely north of the center.
