It's interesting to look through to see what consideration they give to
handling future times. They have the luxury of being able to use a mission
timescale that can be decoupled from civil time so they can mostly specify
the difficult parts of the problem out of existence.

Rockall, Malin, Hebrides: South 5 to 7, occasionally gale 8 at first in
Rockall and Malin, veering west or northwest 4 or 5, then backing southwest 5
or 6 later. Rough or very rough. Occasional rain. Moderate or good,
occasionally poor.
