Example Forecast 21/05/11 – 22/05/11 – Tuesday AM Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Saturday will see a High of 1024 millibars off / over the South Eastern Coast, whilst in the North, there will be a low of 1000 millibars in the Norwegian sea moving North away from us. But it will clearly have some impact on Scotland, but the main influencer will be a Low of 994 millibars in the North Western North Atlantic which will be North West of Ireland by midday. Behind this Low will be a High of 1028 millibars off the Eastern North American Coast, which over the period will push the Atlantic Low further in towards Scotland. By Sunday the Low will probably have moved in towards Scotland, but the problem area will be the South East Low, which as it moves east will leave a trail, that will connect with the now Mid Atlantic High. This will create a front that will prevent the effects of the Low (any swell) reaching the South Western UK. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Scotland, Scotland, Scotland! – that’s where you should head, everywhere else will be weak and naff overall. Northern (and Western) Scotland, will be the biggest, the South West and Wales will have a weak knee high wave of sorts, while the East and South Coasts will be smurf-sized. Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

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.
