Cowes Week Weather Forecast: Friday 4th August UPDATE Issued by CWL: 1200 Friday 4 August



High pressure sitting in the Atlantic drives a moderate NW'ly flow.


The prevailing wind is a moderate NW'ly flow, as the temperature increases, the sea breeze is likely to suppress the gradient before filling in from the SW.

*** UPDATE: The layer of stratocumulus is acting as a lid and inhibiting temperature rise and convection. Therefore, I now believe it is very unlikely that a sea-breeze will develop. ***

1000 - 1200 NW'ly 08-12KT
1200 - 1400 NW'ly 06-10KT
