Example Forecast 04/06/11 – 05/06/11 – Tuesday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

Okay in short it ain’t clear, and things will change as the week goes on, but as it stands a High of 1024 millibars will be over us on Saturday, with another High of 1036 millibars moving in from the Atlantic at 1036 millibars. Sandwiched between these two High pressure systems will be a couple of weak Low’s of about 1016 millibars. Clearly normally these Low’s would not even normally be classed as Low’s due to their fatness on the pressure scale. But in the case of this weekend they are as registering on the Low scale due to the fatness of the High’s, consequently any swell produced by the Low’s will be weakened by all the High pressures around. Stay tuned for further updates, as things will undoubtedly develop as the week goes on………….

OVERALL

Not great anywhere, onshore winds and lumpy swell for the North and East, the South West and Wales will have a weak pulse of swell, but this will not be helped by the ever increasing (in strength) offshore winds. Search and you will find something somewhere…..! Stay tuned for further updates, as things may change as the week goes on…………

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A small fun weekend for you in the South West and Wales. The East Coast will be small too, but it will be a bit bigger by Sunday as the winds are stronger onshore. Take your pick and have fun….. 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.
