Example Forecast 07/05/11 – 08/05/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Things have changed since Tuesday, whether it is in a good way or not is up to your interpretation!?! Saturday will see the two Low’s in the 990 millibar range form one bigger entity at about 984 millibars of our Western Coasts in particular South West of Eire. This Low will be surrounded by High pressures, to the North over the Baltic Sea at 1028 millibars which will also extend as far as Italy, with another High of 1024 millibars off the Eastern North American / Canadaian Coast. This sandwiching effect will squish and squash the Low and push it a little further North for Sunday, but it will remain off the Irish West coast at 990 millibars on Sunday. There is however a big caveat to throw in here, as with all High pressure’s we know that their movement and their sphere of influence is a very dynamic one, and they can change track / their speed can vary – thus (normally) delaying the outcome of events. However, at this time it all looks pretty concretized, but do just bare this in mind over the period.

OVERALL

A cranking weekend down in the South West and Wales, naff in Northern Scotland, the East Coast will get onshore waves. Read your areas to get the best of what there is…………enjoy!

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A very challenging weekend for you from the perspective of the strong winds (take care not to take your board to your head) and the size. Head for spots that will be a bit more protected, to make it more manageable and fun for you.

It should be remembered

It should be remembered:

  • Regardless of the Weekend Outlook if there is surf, you should be out there to improve your surfing ability
  • so unless it’s flat, just ignore it(!) and go surfing.
  • The Weekend Outlook is aimed at those who are competent at paddling out in 6ft plus surf and looking for perfect conditions.
  • This is a SURF report, we care about the waves, as to whether it is sunny, rainy, snowy or hailing is incidental, and neither here nor there as far as we are concerned.
  • Also note that this is always written for midday, so there may be variances during the AM and PM.
  • Wave Heights are written in what you are actually taking in the face / duck diving, we are not into macho bs of measuring the wave from the back, this is the real thing, what you drop and ride = simple.
