What am I not seeing lads??

Extended outlook - Marine weather - Met Office

Inshore waters and strong winds
For coastal areas up to 12 miles offshore from Friday 17 May 2013 at 1200 UTC until Saturday 18 May 2013 at 1200 UTC

General Situation

A complex area of low pressure will continue to affect the United Kingdom for several more days. As warmer air moves westwards from the Continent, this will mean an increasing risk of haar for some North Sea coasts.

Strong winds are forecast
24 hour forecast:

Wind
Variable 3 or 4, becoming northwesterly 4 or 5, increasing 6 later.
Sea state
Slight, occasionally moderate in north.
Weather
Showers, rain later.
Visibility
Good becoming moderate later.

Outlook for the following 24 hours:

Northerly or northwesterly 5 to 7, veering northeasterly 4 or 5, then becoming variable 3 or 4 later.

Tony your vision is spot on!! Its absolutely beautiful here on the west at the moment but as correctly point out theres a change coming quicker than thought from the south-east. Theres a yellow warning on Met Office and theres a fair amount of rain forecast for 4 ish in the afternoon.
Sorry but thats been the WX pattern for months now we have not had a settled spell for ages.
I do hope it holds for you and you make it over and have a good day not and endurance day
