Example Forecast 25/06/11 – 26/06/11 – Thursday Arvo. Version......

PRESSURE SYNOPSIS

A doubled headed fat Low of 1002 millibars off the Western Irish Coast on Friday will move North and East up towards the North Western Scottish Coast on Saturday. For Sunday little will have changed, due mainly due to the High Pressure systems. Which pans out as follows, a French High of 1024 millibars will move East and combine with a German High of the same pressure. By Sunday, and the High will be one entity over Germany at 1024 millibars, stalling the movement East of the Low off Ireland (now off North Western Scotland). This will mean that the South Westerly winds that helped move the Irish Low in, will now disappear to be replaced by South Easterly winds. So a fun filled weekend, with swell for Western facing Coasts with variable to offshore winds by the end. Read your specific areas and enjoy……..

OVERALL

The South West, Wales, and the Channel Islands will all be cooking at various times over the period, especially on Sunday with the offshore winds. Western Scotland will have the best swell in Scotland throughout the period. So if you are all prepared to do some searching you’ll score some fun waves over the weekend.

BEGINNERS / IMPROVERS

A challenging day on Saturday with lumpy conditions, but by Sunday the swell will have dropped a bit and the winds will have gone offshore – so should be fun……make sure you respect the drop-in rule, always look each side before you pop-up….! ;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.
