Example Forecast 11/06/11 – 12/06/11 – Thursday Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A weak High of 1020 millibars over the Eastern UK on Friday will be pushed Eastwards into Eastern Europe / Scandinavia overnight, as a weak Low of 1014 millibars comes in from Iceland. By Saturday midday, this new Low will be on the East Coast of the UK still at 1014 millibars, whilst another Icelandic / Greenland Low of the same depth will move in from to the near North West Atlantic. Meanwhile another two Mid-Atlantic Low’s will move in, one coming into Biscay again in the 1014 millibar range; whilst the other will still be in the Mid-Atlantic on Saturday slightly deeper. By Sunday midday there will be four, yes four Low’s lined-up in Biscay, all the way back to Eastern North America. The nearest two of these Low’s (which will be in Biscay) at 1012 millibars, whilst the other two that are further back into the Middle Atlantic will be 1008 millibars and 1000 millibars respectively. Now remember back to Saturday and the Greenland / Icelandic Low? – well this will now be in the near North Western Atlantic at 1008 millibars, off the North West Coasts of Ireland and Scotland respectively. The Highs to counter act all these Low’s will be in the North Sea on Sunday, but again, as per Saturday they will be weak and constantly be being pushed East by all these Low’s.

OVERALL

Well as described in the pressure synopsis above there is a lot moving around, so make sure you read your individual areas to get the best of what there is. But as it stands the South West and parts of the South Coast are your best bet, however what swell there is will come with a heavy dose of wind too. The biggest of the swell will make it’s way in after midday on Sunday – bashable due to the strong winds is the best you can hope for.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A small weekend to start with in the South West, it will increase by midday Sunday as the winds strengthen too. So a manageable weekend, mind the wind and head for Cornwall to get the best of what there is. having said that spots on the South Coast will also have waves. So you have a few options overall, hunt away! ;0)

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.
